Character Role Analysis

Colonel Fitzwilliam

Colonel Fitzwilliam is one of Darcy's cousins, and his brief entrance into the novel lets Elizabeth confirm Darcy's version of events. He's so nice and respectable that she believes him—even though you'd think she'd have learned not to judge based on experiences.
