A character who is mostly a stand in for the audience, made to be empathetic to all. They won't be exceptional; in fact, they will be decidedly average. They are usually popular by association, in that they tend to interact and be friends with a large group of more interesting supporting characters.

The Everyman is not necessarily bland or lacking in personality but is usually less eccentric and edgy than other characters. They are often defined by others' interactions with them. One gets the distinct feeling that if people weren't trying to kill them / [[ItBeganWithATwistOfFate wacky circumstances didn't happen to them]] / the fate of the world didn't fall into their laps / their wacky neighbors weren't around, The Everyman can come across as boring.
