Describe the CHARACTERS in the image.
Who are they, and how do they generally appear in the narrative?
What type of characters are they, and what are their principal traits/characteristics?
What is their significance in the narrative? Where does the image/scene occur in a DRAMATIC ARC?
PART 2: mise-en-scène
