Character Role Analysis


Porthos comes across as a sidekick in The Man in the Iron Mask. If Aramis is the brains behind the action, Porthos is definitely the brawn. He unquestioningly provides muscle support to Aramis throughout the novel, whether it comes to throwing the King of France into the Bastille or bashing soldiers' heads in with an iron bar.
