In 'literature speak' the protagonist is the 'bad guy' or villian. In the Reptile Room (one of the Lemony Snicket books) the protagonist is Count Olaf, though in this book he is disguised as Stephano, Uncle Monty's replacement assistant. He has narrow eyes and thin features that make him look like a predatory bird of prey. He is very evil and threatens the children many times so that he can inherit their fortune.

The protagonist is the main character, not the bad guy!!! The three protagonists are Violet, Klaus and Sunny
