An exotagonist is the main character who never interacts w/the protagonist nor antagonist.
An exotagonist is the main character in this genre of fiction. The exotagonist is the center and focus of the story, but the exotagonist must never meet nor engage with the protagonist nor the antagonist. I know the standard definition of a protagonist is the main character of the story, but in the sense of exotagonism the protagonist is simply the main character fighting on behalf of the exotagonist, and the antagonist is trying to slander or defile the reputation and/or the physical safety of the exotagonist.

Now that you know what the exotagonist genre is about, this writing prompt is to ask you to write a flash fiction piece that expresses the struggle being faced by all three characters: Exotagonist, Protagonist and Antagonist.
