Supreme Bishop Digby and Mike; Ben Caxton and Mike
Both Digby and Caxton speak out against the philosophies and practices of Mike during his time touring the world and in the Church of All Worlds, and each represents an emotion poisonous to Mike's way of life—Digby with hate and Ben with jealousy. Both characters eventually change their minds, though, and unfoil themselves by the end of the novel.
