In writing, foil is a character in who contrasts with the main character to give a better understanding of the main character’s traits. It’s kind of like a sidekick, but in poetry terms. Plus, it makes for a witty rhyme if you do it right. A few modern examples are Dr. Seuss’ Thing 1 and Thing 2, or Hamilton’s Marius and Enjolras.
