Appreciation

Influence Character Resolve

the degree to which the Influence Character feels compelled to remain on the quest

Explanation:

In order for a story to work, the Influence Character's Resolve must be the inverse of the Main Character's Resolve. If the Main Character's Resolve is Changed then the Influence Character's Resolve is Steadfast. If the MC Resolve is Steadfast then the IC Resolve is Changed. You cannot write a story where both paradigms shift and hope to have it mean anything. The Audience keys in on this dynamic to make sense of the story you told them.
