New Article: Showing the Change in Characters through the Trajectory of a Story
Summary: In a good story, characters create conflict; consequently, conflict creates drama. In addition, a story shows more depth if its characters go through changes. The question is: how can a writer go about showing the changes inside his characters during the trajectory of the story?

    An excellent article. I had not thought of a confidante as a way to show a character's changes. Another good way to highlight a character's change is in using a shadow character- someone who represents what the protagonist could have become if he had made different choices/failed at his goal. One prime example of this would be Vader to Luke, though there are many more subtle examples.
