Character Analysis:
I read the fairy tale “Brother and Sister” by the Brothers Grimm and chose to write a character analysis on the brother character. Most of the decision he makes are good but the one about drinking water from the stream was a bad one. That decision changed brother to a Roe because their step mother had put spell on every stream on the forest, she is a witch. Brother who is now a Roe motivation is his one and only sister. He loves her very much and cannot see her getting hurt. This is shown by the way he acts to protect his sister even when he is a Roe. Brother is loyal to everyone and by the end of the fairy tale; he is turned into a boy.
