Each user will have their own home directory that only they can access.
Users must change their password when they first log in.

1. Share – Anyone can access this directory to add or remove
2. Protagonists – Only the protagonists group can add or remove
3. Antagonists – Only the antagonists group can add or remove
***Directory names can be named based on your current theme***
Ensure that you test that each account is working by either switching users, or logging in as different users.
