I was surfing through the character pages, and the roles were all over the place. We had protagonists, main protagonists, main heroes, secondary protagonists, supporting characters, and "one of the main characters."

[[Mark]] from ''The Scarecrow Walks At Midnight'' is categorized both as a Protagonist and as a Supporting Character. I think these characters who are second in importance or activity after the protagonist are causing a lot of confusion.

If you don't use deuteragonist or secondary protagonist, there is just one protagonist per book. Even though characters like Mark, Fergie, and Lefty are important to the books, I think they are all supporting characters if there is no middle role, since they are not the one protagonist. Books that have two protagonists are generally romances, where both main characters are equally important.

Ah, gotcha. "One of the main characters" definitely works for characters like Alex in that case. So for a standard book you'll basically have a protagonist, other main characters, and supporting characters on the "good" side and "antagonists on the "bad" side?

I was surfing through the character pages, and the roles were all over the place. We had protagonists, main protagonists, main heroes, secondary protagonists, supporting characters, and "one of the main characters." 

Mark from The Scarecrow Walks At Midnight is categorized both as a Protagonist and as a Supporting Character. I think these characters who are second in importance or activity after the protagonist are causing a lot of confusion.

If you don't use deuteragonist or secondary protagonist, there is just one protagonist per book. Even though characters like Mark, Fergie, and Lefty are important to the books, I think they are all supporting characters if there is no middle role, since they are not the one protagonist. Books that have two protagonists are generally romances, where both main characters are equally important.
