This study aimed at revealing and describing multiculturalism in Indonesian literary novels from the perspective of character building. Indonesian literary novels reflect multiculturalism from the perspective of character building. It means that there are many portrayals of activities, behaviors, and language features in the novels which reflect the multiculturalism of the characters that people can use as media for character building, especially for the future gold generation. Therefore, they can build Indonesia as a safe, peaceful, and prosperous nation. The multiculturalism in the novels studied describe the characters including Fahri, Ayyas, Yalena, Lenor, Anastasia, Aisha, Fahmi, Hamza, Ali, and Subki, who come from different nations, social status, culture, and religion, yet they can still live together with respecting each other, tolerance, and helping each other when there is one of them in need without looking at all the differences. They help each other due to their love to Allah and their willing to run Allah’s commands. The character, attitudes, and behaviors of the characters in the novels who deal with respecting each other, appreciating each other, tolerance, and admitting the existence of other people from different nation, culture, and religion; can be an example and medium for multiculturalism education from the perspective of character building for the society, especially for the young generation. The result of this research can contribute to the development of literature theory generally, and literature sociology especially. Furthermore, it can contribute to the multiculturalism education from the perspective of character building for Indonesian society, especially the young generation.
