Can I Introduce Characters Late Into The Story? Like in Act 3?
It is common to introduce supporting characters late in the story. For example, in Star Wars (1977), the generals are introduced in Act III.
There is also no technical reason why you can't introduce main characters late in the story.
The thing to remember is that one of the roots of story is the letting go of limitations. As long as that is fulfilled...in other words, somehow the story resolves, then there is no problem.
