Alby is a dynamic character in the story the Maze Runner. The drastic changes that Alby went through after the Changing are clearly apparent. He is the dynamic character because in the beginning of the story he is nice and also strict and is a leader that manages the Glade. After getting stung by the griever and going through the Changing he becomes very different. He doesn’t want to be the leader and he becomes depressed, crazy and acts differently. It seems like he becomes a whole new person.
I believe that Chuck is the static character in the story the Maze Runner. His character stays the same throughout the story. He stays funny, kind, friendly and loyal to Thomas. He helps Thomas when he first arrived in the Glade. He always cared for Thomas and had a strong connection with him. He supported Thomas even though some people suspected him and at last in the end, Chuck sacrificed his life to protect Thomas from getting killed by the knife. Chuck is a static character because his loyalty, attitude and character remained the same throughout the story.
The main setting of the story is in a mini society called the Glade. We don’t know where in the world the story takes place, we only know that it is called the Glade and is surrounded by maze, which isolates the society from the rest of the world. There is also no specific time, but could be assumed and believed it is sometime in the future. The Glade is a society separate from the rest of the world and there is no way out of it. The Glade is located in the center of the Maze and is surrounded by a maze in all four directions. It operates like a society and has farms, gardens, forests, graveyards, buildings, and a courtyard. It has four section; The Gardens, The Blood house, The Homestead, and the Deadheads. The four sections of the Glade could be understood as the specific setting of the story. The Gardeners grow the food for the society like grains and vegetables. The Blood house is where the Gladers raise and then slaughter their animals for meat. The Homestead is where the Gladers eat the food that is cooked by their chef, Frypan. The hospital, sleeping areas and washrooms are all in the Homestead. It is kind of the living area. At last the Deadheads is the section that has the Graveyard. There is also the map room where the Runners record the maps after they explore the Maze. This are basically all the places that the story takes place in.
Bottom Line: The time of the story is in a futuristic period without a specific date or time. The main setting is in the Glade but we don’t know where in the world the Glade is located. We just know it is surrounded by a maze and is isolated from the real world. The more specific settings of the story could be The Gardens, The Blood house, The Homestead, The Deadheads, The Maze, the elevator and etc.
