Main Characters Who Stop

The nature of a Main Character’s growth always has a direction to it. If the Main Character is a change and stop character, it will grow through change by abandoning a detrimental characteristic which it is presently exercising. If the Main Character is a steadfast and stop character, it will grow in its resolve to hold out for some negative force outside of itself to finally stop. Because both cases require the cessation of an activity (either in the character or its environment) the direction of growth is said to be Stop.
