Character Role Analysis

Mary Rambo

Mary provides some critical moral and economic support for the narrator at a low point in his life (i.e., after he's lobotomized and out of work). Her unwavering belief in racial progress and the narrator's potential gives the narrator a firmer foundation on which to base his life.
