    or, is this feels like a too much professional tool to be easily found on the internet or in some book, a very good book on classic archetypes, like myths from the old age and alike

    I mean a book which describes specifically what each character means, what role he usually plays in the story and so on..

      thanks for the answers, I'll give those references a good look and reply as soon as I can; but I am afraid that's not exactly what I was looking for.

      thanks anyway
