The Queen (Genevieve Pring) and The White Rat.
The Queen (Genevieve Pring) and The White Rat.

A story’s not a story without a variety of characters.  Each of these main characters are important to how we view this magical kingdom and the happenings of the fairytale.  Although my opinions and philosophy about the characterization is not exhaustive, knowledge of these allows participants my paradigm as a point of departure and inspiration for crafting theirs.  Your own views and individuality create adaptations which are unique to you.  Understanding the paradigm I’m working with also gives help communicating the theory behind your world by demonstrating how to map out the reality the fairytale exists in.  Once the fairytale firmly exists, the characters can go off into other scenarios beyond the basic ones in the storyline.  This is where the story of a lost sailor becomes more than some lines recorded in Homeric verse, or what James Joyce’s did with Ulysses.  To create a living workable storyline which can be interpreted as: game, theatre, literature, visual or performing art it is essential that there be strong theories and beliefs underlying the characters and worlds they inhabit.
