Character Role Analysis

Mary and Arnold

Mary is Arnold's sister that hides in her parents' basement. Like Arnold, she leaves her home, but, unlike Arnold, she does not leave the reservation entirely. She simply moves to another reservation in Montana. Mary's story can be contrasted with Arnold's: unlike his success story, hers is one that ends in tragedy.
