A Satellite Love Interest is a TV Tropes term that refers to a character who's role is limited to being a love interest and serves little purpose to the story. Often the reasons they aren't given more depth is due to their otherwise irrelevancy to the plot. When they do become part of the main cast, its usually as a Driving Force. Nevertheless, these characters can sometimes find a fanbase.
