Characters in the Subjective Story

When considering the characters in the Subjective Story Throughline, it is best to look at the Main and Obstacle Characters in terms of their relationship with each other in lieu of their names. The Subjective Story Throughline is the “We” perspective, (i.e. first-person plural) so think entirely in terms of the relationship between the Main and Obstacle Characters, not the characters themselves. Thus, “the relationship between Dr. Richard Kimble and Sam Gerard” is the focus of the Subjective Story Throughline in The Fugitive, whereas The Verdict focuses on “the relationship between Frank Galvin and Laura Fischer.”
