Character Role Analysis

Old Woman

The Old Woman is her husband's sidekick. She doesn't seem to have too many ideas of her own. For the most part, she lives to help facilitate the Old Man's dream. She is everything to her husband: mother, father, and wife. Her only goal in life appears to be to support him in whatever he does.
