Local colour is a style of writing which focuses on the presentation of the features and peculiarities of a particular locality and its inhabitants. A character is a person in a narrative work such as a drama, novel, play, television, series or film. Characters may be flat, minor, major, or round according to their deeds in the narrative work. The main character in a story is generally known as the protagonist and the character who opposes him or her, is the antagonist. Characters are extremely significant because they are the means through which a reader interacts with a piece of literature. Characterization is the process by which a writer reveals the personality of the characters. Characterization is the most memorable and important aspect of novels. Characters in regional setting tend to be concerned with the character of the district or region rather than with the individual. Characters may become character types, sometimes old-fashioned or stereotypical and are marked by their lifestyle focused on the old ways of living.
