John Proctor
Reputable – “I-I have no witness and cannot prove it, except my word be taken. But I know the children’s sickness has naught to do with witchcraft.” (P. 64) Honorable – “You have made your magic now, for now I do think I see some shred pf goodness in John Proctor. Not enough to weave a banner with, but white enough to keep it from such dogs.” (P. 133)

Abigail Williams
Vengeful – “We danced. And Tituba conjured Ruth Putnam’s dead sisters. And that is all. And mark this. Let either of you breathe a word, or the edge of a word, about the other things, and I will come to you in the black of some terrible night and I will bring a pointy reckoning that will shudder you.” (P. 19) Manipulative – “I want to open myself! I want the light of God, I want the sweet love of Jesus! I danced for the Devi; I saw him; I wrote in his book; I go back to Jesus; I kiss His hand. I saw Sarah Good with the Devil! I saw Goody Osburn with the Devil! I saw Bridget Bishop with the Devil!” (P. 45)

John Hale
Naïve – “I must say it, Mr. Proctor; that is not for you to decide. The man’s ordained, therefore the light of God is in him. (P. 62) Cowardly – “Quail not before God’s judgment in this, for it may well be God damns a liar less than he throws his life away for pride.” (P. 122)

Elizabeth Proctor
Humble – “I cannot dispute with you sir, I lack learning for it.” (P. 122) Honest – “I see what I see, John.” (P. 52)

Reverend Parris
Paranoid – “You cannot hang this sort. There is danger for me. I dare not step outside at night!” (P. 119) Selfish – “Excellency, it would profit nothing you should blame me. I cannot think they would run off except they fear to keep in Salem and more.” (P. 117)
