Sir Thomas More is the leading role.
Sir Thomasís main antagonist is Thomas Cromwell, who is determined to bring More down. He has character traits that are the opposites of Moreís.
Richard Rich and The Duke of Norfolk are minor antagonists who help Cromwell achieve his goal. Alice is another minor antagonist. She is strongly opposed to Sir Thomasí decision. She wants him to do what the King wants him to do so that they can just live their life as in the past.
The climax begins when Alice, Margaret and Will Roper visit More in jail and Alice begins to accept Moreís behavior. At the trial, once he is condemned, More changes from being silent to eloquently expressing how he thinks.
The outcome is the death by beheading of Sir Thomas More.
