Who do you consider to be The Main Character

Detective_JonathanDetective_Jonathan Member Posts: 1,165

Aside from saying your main, who do you think is the main character of this game, and don't say "The Survivors dude," i won't accept that, what i want to know is which survivor do you think is the main protagonist of this game, we already know our main Villain is The Entity along with The Killers, but who would be the main protagonist?

For me it would have to be Dwight, simply because he feels like that outcast in a certain movie that no one wants to be around, but then will ultimately step up and save the day.

    I always thought of the Entity as the true main character. It's Her world, Her story, Her development. That's what DbD is really all about; the Entity's growth as a character and as a being.

    Interesting, a character we know nothing about is the main character. All that we know about her is that she goes through a cleansing period with the blight and all.

    I'm sorry, when was it confirmed the entity was a girl? I really want to know (plz source)

    I don't think it was. Benedict Baker says "it".

    This thing, that I dubbed The Entity, is evil in its purest form. I find it hard to spot, but I can hear the cracking sound this loathsome thing emanates. Like a deity, it surrounds the area, closing in on me as its killers hunt me. It does not seem to be dangerous in itself. Not until you are caught and the killer hangs you from one of the abhorrent hooks. I have ended up there over and over and every time I yearn for both release as well as escape. Pain melts with fear in a most horrid way. Yet I return to it, more or less every night. Once on the hook, the Entity takes over, pulling one upwards to something else.

    Meg.

    Dwight's a wannabe leader and both in-game and out is lovable, but also a joke. Meg's the real fighter of the group.

    It's not really confirmed but it is potentially of a female gender.

    k, thx.

    but to be fair it's a completely different being than what us, WHO-MANS, are, that we can't even comprehend. It does feel emotions but not ones that us humans have. for all we know it has no gender.

    But at least I can see why some think it's a girl, thanks. but I still think it's a gender less being.

    Duh

    Benedict Baker is the main character. He's the one who is doing research and he is the one who has any character development

  • RaptorrotasRaptorrotas Member Posts: 1,615
    I think the original 4 characters are all the nain characters, although dwight feels like that viewer/player-surrogate who needs everything explained to becuse the viewer/player needs that exposition.
  • VolantConch1719VolantConch1719 Member Posts: 420

    Like PigNRun said, each one is the main protagonist of their chapter. But if we discount those, I would have to say Dwight. He's a coward, but the others still follow him as a leader.

  • Ember_HunterEmber_Hunter Member Posts: 1,693

    I do agree that all the characters are the main protagonists by themselves, but the most main character-like has to be Laurie or Dwight. Most minor feels like Jeff and Quentin.

    xD no if a french word finish by ''-té'' that doesn't mean it's a female chara but in french we use -l'- so it means that we don't know its gender.

    In french we use -le- for male and -la- for female but when a word start with a vowel we use -l'-. In that case we don't know if it's a female or a male. The Entity (Entité in french) starts with a vowel so we use -l'- to designate it so in french it's genderless.

    to be honest, the entity being female does seem more interesting than male...
    Genderless makes the most sense though.
    If the Entity is slowly learning about the real world, I wonder what more things could it bring into It's realm...

    I'm not hear to discuss gender with you, make another thread about it if you feel the need to. :)

    And what is the French word for "Entity"? Is it male or female?

    From personal experience, and I don't mean too much offence, many speakers of a language they consider their mother tongue have poor grammar skills or at the very least inferior ones to someone who was taught the language in school and didn't grow up with it. It's a common phenomenon amongst all languages.

    I study English and French linguistics. In French the pronoun does not define the grammatical gender, it merely adapts to the grammatical gender that is defined by the noun.

    'raison' is defined as a feminine noun, hence why you say 'la raison'.

    'pommier' is defined as a masculine noun, hence why you say 'le pommier'.

    Your assumption that the direct object pronouns 'le, la, l' define the gender is wrong, French nouns are inherently assigned a grammatical gender.

    Now, since French prefers fluid speech and tries to avoid re-articulation if possible (which would happen with pronouncing 2 vowels after one another), in cases of a noun beginning with a vowel, the shortened 'l with an apostrophe' is used. You again made another wrong assumption: l' is NOT genderless, it's actually a unisex pronoun and can be used for either grammatical gender as its sole function is to omit a double vowel pronunciation.

    There is NO neuter gender in French. All nouns are EITHER masculine or feminine.

    And finally: French possesses numerous suffixes that are typical to a grammatical gender, meaning that the vast majority of nouns having them (about 90% or more), are of that gender. Let me give you a couple of examples

    Typical masculine suffixes: -eau, -ais, -ait, -er, -age, -ege, -ème, -isme, -aume and many more

    Typical feminine suffixes: -aie, -asse, -enne, -ande, -onne, -ise and many more

    The suffix -té is a typical feminine suffix, like in la clarté, la pureté, la salubrité, la virginité.

    You see, a lot of 'la'. The same goes for 'entité'. It's an inherently feminine noun and the sole reason it goes with 'l w/ apostrophe' is to omit saying 'la entité' as the double vowel forces a re-articulation between the two words, something French doesn't want (expect for nouns starting with 'h aspiré' for some weird reason).

    Still doubt my French skills and in turn my Wiki article (yes, I wrote that one)?

    Apologies to @Detective_Jonathan for going a bit off topic with that long explanation, but I dislike people claiming stuff that isn't true.

    No you're fine, i always referred to your wiki whenever someone had a question about The Entities gender or the games lore, it's a shame though that someone who speaks the native tongue don't even know how things work especially in their own language.

    I think Meg could be the main character, some say Dwight but I'm pretty sure Megan was the first survivor developed so that's why I think it. Plus by her perks and backstory would make sense for it

    Yeah, her backstory sounds more horror-movie induced, and between Meg and Dwight, I prefer her by a large margin. :D

    I think the Trapper since he's seen it all, also he IS the posterboy of the game

  • LCGasterLCGaster Member Posts: 3,154

    My main is Mr. Bing Bong.

    I don't think there is a protagonist in this game since there isn't a specific story but only Lore. I think that everyone has their own "Protagonist", when you play a match you are telling a story about the character you are playing as.
    You could say that Benedict Baker could be the protagonist but I think he's just the narrator.
    In the end if there is no story there can't be a protagonist.
    I really hope BHVR will make a single player game based on DBD's lore, it would be interesting
