  • Weary dragon rider putting on a performance, a child watching for the first time, dragon wishing it could be free, spouse of the dragon rider who fears flying.

  • Star ship captain on his or her first mission landing on a planet that hasn't be visited by outsiders before, an inhabitant of the planet, the red shirt who is going to get killed.

  • Newly made vampire who was turned unwillingly, her victim who has just been dumped by his girlfriend, vampire hunter who lives on the blood of vampires but is on a quest to eliminate them all.

  • Person facing a dilemma, shoulder angel, shoulder devil.
