The most important character in Part 2 is Scout, or Jean Louise Finch. Scout is the most important character in Part 2 because as the chapters are read, she blossoms into a braver young girl. In Chapter 31, Scout walks Boo Radley, or Arthur, back to the Radley house, without caring about the haunting rumors which were told to her about Arthur. On page 278, Arthur asked Scout to take him back to the Radley house, and she did without a sign of fear because she was not fazed by all the rumors that were told to her about Arthur. She has always wanted to interact with Arthur and in this chapter, she was able to take him home while holding his hand in the process. From a girl with little courage to a lady with true bravery, Scout is the most important character in Part 2. The person who is similar to Scout would be Atticus Finch because they were both willing to take risks.
