Hassan, on one hand, was brave and did not fear defending people he cared about, like when he, “held the slingshot pointed directly at Assef’s face,” (42) when the bully confronted Amir in an aggressive fashion. When the tables turned and Assef proceeded to rape Hassan, Amir proved to be cowardice by running away because, “[he] was afraid of Assef and what he would do to [him],” (77). Loyalty was also one of Hassan’s prominent qualities as shown when although, “[h]e knew [Amir had] seen everything in that alley,” he was willing to rescue Amir, “once again, maybe for the last time,” (105). Contrastingly, Amir not only betrayed Hassan but attempted to have him and his father dismissed from service by lifting, “Hassan’s mattress and [planting his] new watch and a handful of Afghani bills under it,” (104). Yet despite all this, the two boys still had a sincere love for one another, although it may have been temporarily painful.

Scout’s recollection not only foreshadows further intolerance in the community but also shows a perspective from young and innocent member, and how she follows the beliefs of the adults. Soon, Jem and Scout mention Boo Radley to their new friend Dill. Being a newcomer to Maycomb, Dill becomes curious and wants to know what Boo is like.

Biff's behavior causes him to believe that his son is spiting him, although all he is trying to do is help his poor father. Willy will constantly say things that he does the opposite of, such as stating to 'not act like an office boy' yet scrambling to assist his boss in menial tasks. His self contradictory ways can also be supported by this quote, stating"One of the primary characteristics of Willy Loman's character is his penchant for self-contradiction: "Biff is a lazy bum! There's one thing about Biff- he's not lazy.""(Murphy). The most substantial evidence comes from Willy's hallucinations.

Middle class working men love the idea of becoming someone who is feared and dreaded, but they would never muster up the courage to actually become this person.
However, Taviana is in a vulnerable situation where criminal activity is tempting; Unity wrongfully tosses Taviana to the streets and the Prophet does not care for Taviana.

Despite the fact that the criminals are somewhat gentle and misleading, they show no mercy in their actions, but enjoy their victims’ agony and horror instead with no regrets, suggesting that the nature of evil is extremely cruel, ignorant of human life and that the human capacity for manipulation has no limits.
