Jean Louise "Scout" Finch

Jean Louise has the nickname Scout for a reason. Like you, she is adventurous, resourceful and knowledgeable. She has a bright and original personality and is optimistic enough to see the good in people.

Scout's optimism is challenged throughout the story as a trial against a black man causes other's prejudices to emerge. Her young age during the time when the book takes place plays a role in how she treats other characters in the story and how she handles situations. She acts very mature for her age but sometimes kids will be kids.

Atticus Finch

Like Atticus, you share your wisdom whenever you can, with whomever you can. You show empathy for everyone and you think everyone deserves equality. A widower, the father of Jem and Scout Finch and the lawyer defending a black man in a city where white is often separated from black, Atticus Finch has a strong moral compass and wants justice to be brought to everyone, which is what he teaches his kids.

Like Calpurnia, you may be described as is a strict but kind, tough but nurturing, and bossy but motherly. Calpurnia is the generous, introverted and motherly housekeeper to the Finch children. Though she is not a major character within the story, she is the bridge between the white Finch family and the black community, which is a meaningful connection.

Jem Finch

Jem is the reckless thrill seeker of the Finch family. He is a young, courageous boy, never willing to turn down a dare from his younger sister, Scout, or his friend Dill. Jem is always Scout's protector because he is her best friend, even though they are four years apart in age. Like Jem, you are bold and adventurous but also kind and protective of what you love.

Arthur "Boo" Radley

Like Boo, you are humble, intelligent and kind, even if it may not be seen by everyone. Boo Radley is perceived as the scary and uninviting neighbor living across the street from the main characters. He is one of the mockingbirds in the story in that he has been seen as evil through the story because of societal prejudices.

Charles Baker "Dill" Harris

Dill is the summertime friend of the two main children characters. Like you, he is incredibly confident and courageous and does not hesitate to encourage the reckless games of Jem and Scout Finch. He is a bit strange and fosters a bit of curiosity in readers because he is quiet, so there isn't much to learn about him through the story.
