Wow, Rose, that is some awesome analysis. Let me just add one thing per your observation that a “protagonist doesn’t always need to have a strong character arc.” That is true. Sometimes when the Protagonist refuses to change, their journey is one where they are tested, but they remain steadfast when challenged. Neil’s role in First Man is along those lines.

Thanks for your in-depth analysis! Hope you learned something from the entire process.
