Pete

Character Analysis

Pete has always been the most reasonable among Alex's entourage. Pete is significant because he represents the idea that criminals can reform on their own: the idyllic life he chooses to lead in part three is due entirely to his own efforts. Pete is also notable for being the inspiration to Alex's eventual transformation, as his happiness with his life and wife causes Alex to want the same for himself.
