I have 11 chapters and I am writing about a 6 line paragraph for each. But, I am having trouble with trying to include characters since there are 6 characters that are all involved in the 'crisis'. There are two more important characters but I am wondering if it is necessary to include all the characters since they do play their own important roles. If so, what technique can I use? I want to ensure that the main two characters are of different races and so forth.
