Foil

Character Role Analysis

Raymond Sintes and Meursault

On the other hand, Raymond is also Meursault’s most obvious foil. Sketchy, insincere, and thoughtless, Raymond provides great contrast to Meursault’s introspective nature and honest (albeit callous) character.


Perez and Meursault

Perez, the boyfriend of Meursault’s late mother, is as loving and loyal as they come. Meursault, on the other hand, doesn’t know much about love and marriage... and cares even less to understand either.
