The protagonist in Connell's short story "The Most Dangerous Game" changes throughout the story. In the beginning, Rainsford has no desire to contemplate how a jaguar may feel when looking at the end of a hunter's gun (similar to one he has built his career around). It is not until Ransford becomes Zaroff's most dangerous game that his mind changes.
Therefore, a good topic sentence for a character analysis of Rainsford could be any of the following:
1. The saying "walk a mile in someone's shoes" is very relevant in Connell's short story "The Most Dangerous Game" because until Rainsford walks a mile in the shoes of the prey he has no clue how it would really feel.
2. The character Rainsford changes dramatically through the ordeal he faces when arriving upon Zaroff's iland.
