Entry: deuteragonist (n.)

In context: "Oglivie'd once lectured for a whole period on this kid's character as an instance of the difference between an antagonist and a deuteragonist in moral drama..."

Definition:  The second actor or person in a drama: distinguished from the protagonist.

Other: I feel like this is one of those words you can use to check if people are listening to you when you speak.  If they just nod here, they probably aren't.
