There is the main character and then there are the background characters. Pick a background/side character (or a character that isn't the main character) from any movie, show, novel, etc. and write a story that stars them. It's time for them to get the limelight. This story can be about anything you choose but remember to be creative! This character could be having their own adventure or an adventure with the main. The world is your oyster in the assignment!!
