Charley is the realistic one as Ben only appears to Willy in his illusions or dreams. Charley is the complete opposite of Ben. Charley has attained a limited degree of success within his own town whereas Ben has been highly successful in the "big city." Charley is there with the Loman family every day, living with their problems and continuing to help them financially. He is real. Ben remains almost a figment of Willy's imagination and only appears to Willy when he retreats away from reality.
