→ Stiles Stilinski as the Foil
The foil can play many roles, but they often serve as a contrast to the main character. If the lead is somewhat self-centered, oblivious, and careless, then the foil will be compassionate, intelligent, and logical. Foils are often used to develop multiple characters and can be a source of Plucky Comic Relief. More on this here.
