In trying to figure out the pattern of the rotating 16 elements within each quad, I took into consideration the simple OS characters: protagonist, contagonist, etc. Their decision and action traits seem to mimic how the elements are placed in the Situation/Universe domain. Pursuit is the upper left in the right quad of four. His decision element is consider in the upper left of the left quad of four. Hmm. What about the Mind domain? Can you construct a cast of characters based on the elements in this arrangement? Logic is in the upper left in the right quad of four. Could this be used as an action trait? This might work against most, if not all films, but what would this look like? Is the mind also configuring something this way and adding it into stories in another form? Maybe not either.

Yes, though it is more difficult to have character archetypes because of their quad arrangements. It is usually better to create complex character for Mind stories, though not absolutely necessary.
