Brutus is without a doubt the most noble character in this play. Nonetheless, his impeccable sense of morality also blindfolds him to other people’s sordid motives and makes him easy to be manipulated. Indeed, Brutus is easily manipulated by Cassius in Act 1, Scene 2. In hope to convince Brutus to join the conspirators, Cassius says “Men at some time are masters of their fates: The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves, that we are underlings” (1.2.150-152). As a result, Brutus starts to believes that it is his job to murder Caesar, as he says in Act 2, Scene 1: “It must be by his death: and for my part, I know no personal cause to spurn at him, but for the general” (2.1.14-16).

Cates is the most important character in the play because he had the courage to challenge his town’s views on religion.

Reverend Dimmesdale suffers a greater punishment than Hester by experiencing recurring guilt, physical harm, and Chillingworth’s obsessive need to achieve revenge. As a devout Puritan minister, Dimmesdale preaches against sin. Yet, Dimmesdale contradicts his preaching and has an affair with Hester, a married woman. The novel begins with Hester standing on a scaffold for public shaming. The Puritans use Hester as an example of what will happen if one commits adultery.
Women held the expectation to only desire a marriage due to motherhood, without any urge for sexual or emotional gratification (Hughes, n.d.). With such a strict gendered society, it is not surprising that the Grimm brothers would edit out any explicit or sexual nature from their stories. If the brothers continued having sexualized stories, the tales could have been less popular as the audience of the time disapproved of sex in regards to females, especially before marriage and without the fathers permission (Hughes, n.d). Familial structure was also incredibly important to this patriarchal society, where women “in private life were subject to fathers, husbands, brothers, even adult sons” (Marsh, n.d). When a woman was to be married, it was usually to a many with money,

After the story was told, Katie and Missy continued to ask questions to their father, Mack. The question that struck me the most was when Missy ask, “Then how come he’s so mean?” She was referring to God, and how Jesus sacrificed his life for us just like the Indian Princess. Missy wanted to know how a man can make his people do horrid things like sacrificing themselves for others. Mack responds fairly well to her by saying “Sweetheart, Jesus didn’t think his Daddy was mean. He thought his Daddy was full of love and loved him very much.

This quote shows character development in Dimmesdale. At the beginning of the novel, he refuses to own up to his sin without remorse. He was hypocritical in demanding that Hester reveal the name of the man in her affair, knowing that she would not do it. Now, he recognizes his hypocrisy and feels guilt for it.
