A type of Agent?

First and foremost, this appears to be a question of the nature of these creations. Can they qualify as Agents because they appear to be capable of acting in certain ways?

From the EN 15907 definition of Agent:

"... an entity that is involved in the creation, realization, curation or exploitation of a Cinematographic Work"

For some philosophical concepts of agents and actions, see [10].

In drama, a fictitious character would be considered as part of the subject of the work.
