Because he is different, Bernard is the source of considerable speculation and suspicion. He does not enjoy sports; he likes to be alone; he is unhappy. Bernard doesn't know why he is dissatisfied, why he is different; many of his associates speculate that alcohol was accidentally put in his blood-surrogate while he was still "in the bottle." When we first meet Bernard we see him as a rebel, a protestor, "an individual."

It is at this point, the narrator finally lets go and deals with his own sadness. Certain events in the narrator's life such as the deaths of his uncle, father, and mother have turned the narrator into an unfeeling man who can not forgive his brother Sonny for falling into a life of heroine addiction. Throughout the story the narrator is angered by the the choices his brother makes such as not attending school, drug use, hanging out in nightclubs, and eventually his arrest. The narrator's anger is expressed in one scene where he goes to his brothers apartment and tells Sonny “that he might as well be dead as live the way he was living”(Baldwin, 2007).

These impressions quickly placed stereotypes among them; Andy being the jock, Claire the popular princess, Bender the thief, Alison the psychopath, and the “Brian” being the genius.
