Many of the best stories in fiction have both an antagonist and a protagonist.
The protagonist is the main character or hero that we cheer on and hope conquers all.
The antagonist is the story’s villain. The best bad guys are the ones we love to hate. We donít need to know why they are bad, we donít need a play by play of the choices they made early in life, we simply recognize they are bad and we donít want them to win.
