Jean Louise Finch (Scout) Jeremy Atticus Finch (Jem) Atticus Finch Arthur Radley (Boo) The narrator of To Kill a Mockingbird, Scout is Atticus's daughter, Jem's sister, Alexandra and Jack's niece, and friends with Dill. In the three years the novel covers, she grows from six-years-old to nine. Scout is intelligent and loves to read, but is also headstrong, outspoken, and a tomboy. As the novel opens, Scout is both innocent and intolerant of anything new or different. Scout's innocence falls away in part because she is growing up and in part from the trial of Tom Robinson: she discovers how cruel and violent people can be. But she also learns, through Atticus's careful teaching, that the necessary response to intolerance is to try to understand its origins, to relate to people in terms of their dignity rather than their anger, and to use that foundation as a way to try to slowly change their minds. Scout's older brother and Atticus's son. Jem is four years older than Scout, and therefore understands many of the events in Maycomb in a way that the younger Scout can't. Intelligent and adventurous as a child, Jem never loses these qualities but also grows into a young man who is strong, serious, idealistic, and sensitive. While both Scout and Jem love Atticus, Jem also reverses the justice and moral character that Atticus stands...

for, and which he wants to one day stand for himself. Scout and Jem's widowed father, and Alexandra and Jack's brother. He employs Calpurnia, but thinks of her as family. A distinguished lawyer in Maycomb, Atticus believes in moral integrity, and stands up against the racism of Maycomb to defend a black man, Tom Robinson, falsely accused of rape by a white man, Bob Ewell. Yet as much as Atticus believes in acting morally, he does not believe in righteously condemning those who don't always act morally. Instead, Atticus teaches his children his strong sense of morality and justice and to search out and respect the dignity of every human being, to try to see the world from their individual point of view. He is one of the few residents of Maycomb committed to racial equality. A recluse who never sets foot outside his house, Arthur is an object of fascination for many Maycomb residents. Many rumors describe Arthur as a kind of monster who stabbed his father as a boy, eats cats, and haunts the neighborhood at night. He turns out to be innocent, gentle, kind, protective of children, intensely shy, and one of the mockingbirds to which the title of To Kill a Mockingbird refers. He is a powerful symbol of goodness swathed in an initial shroud of creepiness, leaving little presents for Scout and Jem and emerging at an opportune moment to save the children. An intelligent child emotionally damaged by his cruel father. Calpurnia Charles Baker Harris (Dill) Miss Maudie Atkinson Aunt Alexandra Tom Robinson Bob Ewell Mayella Ewell Uncle Jack Mrs. Henry Lafayette Dubose The Finches black cook, she essentially raised Scout and Jem. Atticus considers her family. Calpurnia is strict but loving. As a child, Scout resents Calpurnia's rules and restrictions, but as she grows she comes to recognize and respect Calpurnia for her strength, intelligence, and kindness. She is the children's bridge between the white world and her own black community. Jem and Scout's friend, who visits Maycomb each summer from his home in Meridian, Alabama. Miss Rachel Haverford is his aunt. Dill is an intensely imaginative and sensitive boy who uses his imagination to hide loneliness and pain: though his mother is divorced, he constantly makes up stories about the greatness of the father he barely knows. Dill is obsessed with Boo Radley. A widowed neighbor of the Finches and a childhood friend of Atticus, Alexandra, and Jack. Miss Maudie Atkinson is a friend and confidante to the Finch children. Her moral outlook is similar to Atticus's. She loves flowers and nature. She shares Atticus's passion for justice and is the children's best friend among Maycomb's adults. Atticus and Jack's sister, and Scout and Jem's aunt. Alexandra is stern and often haughty, and she believes in the importance of social class and gender roles. A black man accused of rape by Bob Ewell, and defended by Atticus. Tom is a family man, father, and churchgoer. He does not have the use of his left arm. Tom is one of the novel's "mockingbirds", an important symbol of innocence destroyed by evil. A drunken, mostly unemployed member of Maycomb's poorest family. Mayella's father and the patriarch of the poor, vicious Ewell clan who live in an old cabin near the town dump. Ewell is thoroughly awful, a man who buys alcohol while letting his children go hungry. Bob Ewell's 19 year old, abused and unhappy daughter and oldest child. Lonely, friendless, and the only woman in her family, Mayella accuses Tom Robinson of raping her. Atticus and Alexandra's younger brother. Scout and Jem's uncle. He is a doctor who was schooled at home. An old, ill-tempered, woman and neighbor of the Finch's. She is an old bitter woman, and a racist through and through, though Jem and Scout discover she has her own dignity and courage deserving of respect. Atticus admires her for the courage with which she battles her morphine addiction. Nathan Radley Hack Tate Link Deas Mr. Underwood Mr. Dolphus Raymond Mr. Walter Cunningham Walter Cunningham Mia Rachel Haverford Mrs. Grace Merriweather Miss Stephanie Crawford Mr. Avery Cecil Jacobs Judge Taylor Mr. Gilmer Miss Caroline Fisher Miss Gates Boo Radley's older brother. A cold and very religious man, he runs the Radley household. Scout thinks that he is similar to the deceased Mr. Radley. Nathan cruelly cuts off an important element of Boo's relationship with Jem and Scout when he plugs upbeat the knothole in which Boo leaves presents for the children. The sheriff of Maycomb and a major witness at Tom Robinson's trial. Heck is a decent man who tries to protect the innocent from danger. He accompanies Atticus to kill the mad dog and delivers the news about Bob Ewell. Tom and Helen Robinson's employer. In his willingness to look past race and praise the integrity of Tom's character, Deas epitomizes (verkörpert) the opposite of prejudice. He makes sure that Helen can pass safely by the Ewells' after Tom is arrested. The writer, editor, and publisher of Maycomb's newspaper. He respects Atticus and proves his ally. Although he openly dislikes blacks, he defends Tom's right to a fair trial. A wealthy white man who lives outside town with his black mistress and interracial children. He pretends to be a drunk so that the citizens of Maycomb will have an explanation for his behavior. In reality, he is simply jaded by the hypocrisy of white society and prefers living among blacks.
