Mrs. Mooney- She is the one who runs the boarding house alone, seperated from her husband.

MRS. MOONEY was a butcher’s daughter. She was a woman who was quite able to keep things to herself: a determined woman. She had married her father’s foreman

Mr. Mooney- He is an alchoholic and abusive person who is irresponsible. He is not a man of word, for he did not practise good behaviour even after promising to the priest.

Polly Mooney- She is the daughter of Mrs. Monney who helps her mother to run the boarding house. She flirts with boaders, she is a little indecent and not very educated.

Polly was a slim girl of nineteen; she had light soft hair and a small full mouth. Her eyes, which were grey with a shade of green through them, had a habit of glancing upwards when she spoke with anyone, which made her look like a little perverse madonna.

Jack Mooney-

Jack Mooney, the Madam’s son, who was clerk to a commission agent in Fleet Street, had the reputation of being a hard case. He was fond of using soldiers’ obscenities: usually he came home in the small hours. When he met his friends he had always a good one to tell them and he was always sure to be on to a good thing-that is to say, a likely horse or a likely artiste. He was also handy with the mits and sang comic songs

Bob Doran- he is the victimized individual. He is not 'loud voiced' or rakish like others and therefore; was selected the person to be trapped. He was paralyzed to take a decision whether to run or to marry Polly, however had to agree to the former due to the condition of the prevailed society.
