Roger Chillingworth was shown to be ambiguous because he was first described as a vengeful horrifyingly natured person, yet shows glimpses of human characteristics, such as assisting Hester and her child in the beginning and leaving everything he left behind after his death to little Pearl. Another example of ambiguity was Hester Prynne, because she at first is someone a reader could pity, then she becomes a cold person with no sense of feeling, then later to a sympathetic fortunate woman. Finally, Dimmesdale’s revelation of his chest marks the last questionable situation. He could have had something physical on his chest because he has always shown pain in that area, Chillingworth acted as if he found something on his chest while the minister was fast asleep, and it would be most likely that Dimmesdale only revealed his chest to the Puritans if they could observe anything significant on his

Later on in this episode Doyle describes how Paddy's mother shows Sinbad affection, 'She wiped his nose and looked at his eyes for ages and pushed the tears away with her knuckle.'

Eveline’s father plays a big part in the story, since it seems like he, and the promise Eveline made to her mother, are the main factors behind Eveline’s thoughts and decisions. The story starts very slow and sad with the author using words like, “invade”, and “dusty”. Once this sad mood is set in the first paragraph, Eveline then begins to think back to her childhood. Through this reminiscing, we learn that her mother is dead, and her father is abusive (through her choice of the word “hunt” when she mentions how he would get them in from playing). Eveline, however, has a chance to escape her current life by leaving with, and marrying a sailor she has met and been secretly dating.
