Character Analysis

(Avoiding Spoilers)

Overview... the voice of caution amongst his co-workers Joy, Sadness, Disgust, and Anger. All five emotions work together to control a preteen girl named Riley, and Fear’s job is to warn them of potential dangers and to point out things that could go wrong. Like all of his co-workers, Fear cares deeply about Riley and wants her to live a happy and – more importantly – safe life.

Personality... an easily frightened ball of nerves. When things are going well, Fear can be friendly and good-natured. But at the first sign of trouble he immediately becomes anxious and paranoid. Though he’s too shy to put up much of a fight with his co-workers, Fear always advocates for the safest possible course of action.
