The bridegroom and his mother are characters who are honourable yet have a distorted image of actuality. The writer has implied the use of blood imagery, when there is a mention about the mother licking the “blood” of her son. Mother tells the Bride’s Father about the night that her son, the Bridegroom’s brother, was murdered. “I rushed….my grief.” The bride, the bridegroom and Leonardo are characters who the writer has portrayed being effected by an ominous influence of supernaturalism and blood vendetta.
