Character Role Analysis


Akuebue is the only friend Ezeulu will listen to. Further, he's the one man who knows Ezeulu isn't simply being headstrong, but he really is doing what he believes Ulu has called him to do. But though Akuebue is a friend and mentor to Ezeulu, ultimately Ezeulu fails to listen even to him.
