Groundhog croquet characters

I’ve been thinking about the development of the two groundhogs in my comic strip Groundhog Croquet. The current book i’m reading from the harold washington library, 20 Master Plots mentioned two types of plots: action plots and plots of the mind.

AesopLion: symbol of strength, represents force, power, physical strength. Not bright, being strong is enoughFox: clever, witty, devious. Strength isn’t physical, it’s mental
Greek masks of tragedyFrowning Mask: tragedy, the theater of forceLaughing Mask: comedy, the theater of fraud
DanteTragedy involves violence, so it is a form of forzaComedy often depends on language to be understood, so it is a form of forda.
ExamplesCharlie ChaplinMarx Brothers; they brought anarchy to language and turned the world of logic upside down.
