    Some of the female characters in the Odyssey were the sirens. They looked beautiful and enchanting. They lured men to them only to kill them. As in the Odyssey, it is written to describe Odysseus's challenge to overcome them. Other female characters were Odysseus's wife who held power at the time that Odysseus left for the battle of Troy. As for some male characters being protagonists, i apologize but seem to fail in memory in that topic. Hope this helps. :D
