Back to Quiz

  • Jean Louise “Scout” Finch -  The narrator and protagonist of the story. Scout lives with her father, Atticus, her brother, Jem, and their black cook, Calpurnia, in Maycomb. She is intelligent and, by the standards of her time and place, a tomboy. Scout has a combative streak and a basic faith in the goodness of the people in her community. As the novel progresses, this faith is tested by the hatred and prejudice that emerge during Tom Robinson’s trial. Scout eventually develops a more grown-up perspective that enables her to appreciate human goodness without ignoring human evil. (2)

Jem

Back to Quiz

  • Jeremy Atticus “Jem” Finch -  Scout’s brother and constant playmate at the beginning of the story. Jem is something of a typical American boy, refusing to back down from dares and fantasizing about playing football. Four years older than Scout, he gradually separates himself from her games, but he remains her close companion and protector throughout the novel. Jem moves into adolescence during the story, and his ideals are shaken badly by the evil and injustice that he perceives during the trial of Tom Robinson. (2)

Atticus

Back to Quiz

  • Atticus Finch -  Scout and Jem’s father, a lawyer in Maycomb descended from an old local family. A widower with a dry sense of humor, Atticus has instilled in his children his strong sense of morality and justice. He is one of the few residents of Maycomb committed to racial equality. When he agrees to defend Tom Robinson, a black man charged with raping a white woman, he exposes himself and his family to the anger of the white community. With his strongly held convictions, wisdom, and empathy, Atticus functions as the novel’s moral backbone. (2)

Tom

Back to Quiz

  • Tom Robinson -  Tom Robinson, is a black field hand who lives on the outskirts of Maycomb with his wife and children. He is a kind and gentle man who earns a lot of respect in the town of Maycomb by his service. Tom Robinson is a member of the church and attends with Calpurnia, this suggests that he is highly religious and respects and worships God. He, like Atticus, is polite and thinks nothing of doing various things for others out of sheer compassion and kindness. Tom is one of the novel’s “mockingbirds,” an important symbol of innocence destroyed by evil. Robinson is an idealized figure of a mockingbird as he shows prejudice through his skin color and invokes sympathy from the audience as we learn he is accused of rape, although we learn that it is a false allegation.

Back to Quiz

  • Mayella Violet Ewell

Tom Robinson's 19-and-a-half-year-old accuser and the daughter of Bob Ewell. She is the oldest daughter of Bob Ewell and has to take care of her siblings, since her father is an alcoholic. She wants a better life for herself and lovingly grows red geraniums, but a change in her situation is unlikely. To get the human contact that she so craves, she attempts to seduce a black man, named Tom Robinson. Through the window, her father sees this action, and calls her a whore, causing Tom Robinson to flee the scene, worried that he may be put on trial. Bob Ewell then finds the sheriff, Heck Tate, and tells him that his daughter has been raped, even though there is no evidence. By testifying against Tom Robinson, she was also trying to destroy the evidence suggesting that she had attempted to seduce him, most likely due to the extremes of racism in Maycomb. (2)

Bob

Back to Quiz

  • Bob Lee Ewell

Robert Everlasting Lee "Bob" Ewell is the main antagonist of To Kill a Mockingbird. He is an alcoholic who poaches game to feed his family, because he spends whatever money they legally gain on booze. He accuses Tom Robinson of raping his daughter and eventually has him thrown in jail, where Tom is subsequently murdered. Everyone in the whole town knows the Ewells are not to be trusted. It is clear that Tom Robinson is convicted because he's black, and not because of Bob Ewell's stand on the trial. Upon hearing about Tom's death, he is absolutely gleeful, gloating about his success. After being humiliated at the trial, however, Bob Ewell goes on a murderous rampage for revenge. His tirade begins by spitting on Atticus's face, followed by a failed attempt at breaking into Judge Taylor's house, and finally menacing Tom's poor widow. To complete his goal for revenge, he attempts to murder Jem and Scout Finch. (2)

Boo

Back to Quiz

  • Arthur Boo Radley is one of the harder to understand characters in To Kill a Mockingbird, and slowly reveals himself throughout the novel. Boo Radley, appears as a very quiet, reclusive character, who only passively presents himself, until the children's final interaction with Bob Ewell. Most of Maycomb believes he is a horrible person, due to the rumors spread about him, and a trial he underwent as a teenager. It is implied during the story that Boo is a very lonely man, who attempted to reach out to the children for love and friendship. Throughout the novel, he is shown as kind and generous. It was not until the end of the book, when he saved Jem and Scout Finch's lives from Mr. Ewell's assault, that he was paid notice. (2)

Dill

Back to Quiz

  • Charles Baker "Dill" Harris

Jem and Scout's best friend, primarily over the summertime. His goal throughout the novel is to get the reclusive Boo Radley to come out of his house, which he hasn't left in years. For the first few summers the children concoct many plans to lure him out, until they are finally reprimanded by Atticus. Dill promises to marry Scout, and they become "engaged". One night Dill runs away from his home in the city, because he feels like he is being replaced in the family by his stepdad, he gets on a train, and heads for Maycomb County. Unlike Scout and Jem he lacks the security of family love. He is unwanted and unloved by his parents. Even Miss Rachel, with whom he stays over the summer, is not a woman deserving of a child's trust and love. He is well aware of her drinking habits. He doesn't have a father, he doesn't know where he lives or when he'll come back, if he does.(2)

Maudie

Back to Quiz

  • Miss MaudieAtkinson

Miss Maudie Atkinson lived across the street from the Finch family. She is described as a woman of about fifty who enjoys baking and gardening; her cakes are especially held in high regard. She is also considered by some to be a symbolic Mockingbird, as she is frequently harassed by devout “Foot-Washing Baptists”, who tell her that her enjoyment of gardening is a sin. She is not prejudiced, unlike many of her Southern neighbors. Also, she is one of the few adults that Jem and Scout hold in high regard and respect. She does not act condescendingly towards them, even though they are young children. It is important to note that Miss Maudie fully explained that "it is a sin to kill a mockingbird", whereas Atticus Finch initially brought up the subject, but didn't go into depth. When Jem gets older, and doesn't want to be bothered by Scout, Maudie keeps her from going mad.(2)

Aunt Alexandra

Back to Quiz

  • Aunt Alexandra Hancock

Alexandra is Atticus Finch's sister, married to James "Uncle Jimmy" Hancock. She has a son named Henry and a very spoiled grandson named Francis. Her husband, James, remains at Finch's Landing, the Finch family homestead, and, as she told Jem upon her arrival that, "he'll keep the place going." She stays with the Finches because she does not find the black Calpurnia a satisfactory maternal figure, and because she wants to make Scout into a Southern belle. She disapproves of Scout being a tomboy and unsuccessfully encourages her to act like a "lady".This is the cause of many conflicts between Scout and Alexandra throughout the course of the novel. She feels guilty and partially responsible when Scout and Jem are attacked by Bob Ewell, then after she gives up on making Scout a lady.(2)

Calpurnia

Back to Quiz

  • Calpurnia (Cal)

She is the Finch family's housekeeper, whom the children love and Atticus deeply respects (he remarks in her defense that she "never indulged [the children] like most colored nurses"); she can be described as a strict mother figure. In Scout's early life she provides discipline, instruction, love, and essentially fills the maternal role for them after their mother's death. Calpurnia is one of the few black characters in the novel who is able to read and write, and it is she who taught Scout to write. She is believed to be just a few years older than Atticus (in fact, they grew up together. Living in Maycomb's African American and Caucasian communities, Calpurnia has two different perspectives on life, and Scout notices that she speaks and acts differently among her black friends than at their home. Because of her unique status, she can relate to both sides of stories.(2)
