Muse

Character Role Analysis

Orr

Initially, Orr stands out only because he's one of the few characters towards whom Yossarian shows a deep compassion. He only assumes his muse role at the end when Yossarian discovers that he has made it to Sweden alive, fooled the bureaucracy, and inspires Yossarian to try it too.
