The main character in the Maze Runner book is Thomas who is the protagonist of the story. He arrives at the Glade with no knowledge of who he is or was bu the only thing he remembers is his name but not is previous life. Evidence to support this is Dashner states in the book", My name is Thomas, he thought. That . . . that was the only thing he could remember about his life. He didn't understand how this could be possible"(1). Thomas is important to the story because he betrayed Wicked to the Right Arm, a military group opposed to WCKD. The Right Arm is much smaller than before. Since Thomas is immune to the Flare, he was sent to the maze then to be dead. Thomas would be a new glader or "greenie" to the Glade and started as a greenie but later on became one of the leaders of the story.
