The protagonist in a novel is the central character who is changed most by the events of the plot. Based on this definition, explain why Lady Blakeney is the protagonist of The Scarlet Pimpernel and Sir Percy Blakeney is not the protagonist.
How is the depiction of the Scarlet Pimpernel similar to that of modern-day heroes and/or superheroes? How does he not fit that role as well? You may select one or more characters to compare and contrast.
