My WIP is coming along fairly nicely, I think, but I'm having some trouble keeping my protagonist as the center of the attention in a few places. He's currently following a mentor figure, and she tends to take charge of scenes because she's a military leader and he's just a cadet. There are a few moments where he shines, especially in the first two chapters, and it will definitely pick up later, but the last 2 1/2 chapters have had him mostly in the backseat. This has been especially obvious in the most recent scene, I think, which is why I'm bringing it up. How bad is it for this to happen? I know I'll need to rewrite some scenes on my second pass-through to improve character development, but should I rework the plot to somehow put him in a more prominent position, as well? I'm not sure how easy this would be to do, but if consensus is that this is a big problem I'll certainly make a note to try changing things around in my second draft. Thanks in advance!
