John Galt  The main character of the novel, John Galt is the man who dominates the action, though  he doesn't appear until two-thirds of the way through the novel. John Galt is the character who  conceives, initiates, and carries to a successful conclusion the strike of the great minds that forms  the core of the novel's action. He is both the inventor of the motor and the "destroyer" that Dagny  fears. Dagny Taggart  The novel's heroine, Dagny Taggart is Galt's most dangerous enemy but also the  woman he loves. Dagny is a brilliant engineer/businesswoman who runs a transcontinental railroad  expertly. Her strength of purpose and impassioned commitment to the railroad enables her to  withstand the injustices of the looters' regime and, by her prodigious productivity, inadvertently  sustain that regime. She is the primary foe that Galt must defeat. Hank Rearden
