We've selected a subgenre, created external scenes and antagonist scenes. Now let's take a look at how the friends and foes complicate the situation.

Interpersonal Conflict scenes are where the protagonist consults a priest about banishing the demon. 

He learns from the librarian that all ghosts have unfinished business.

His buddy tells him he is crazy for believing in ghosts in the first place. 

This is usually where they learn the monster’s Achilles heel. 

The hero finds someone to let him into the witch’s castle. 

People will encourage him to stay and fight and some will beg him to flee. 

Some people will act for him or against him.

Next week, we'll finish up with internal conflict scenes.
