There is a very comprehensive listing of the characters in the novel, along with comprehensive descriptions of each, at the enotes link below.  The section gives extensive information on major characters Edmund Dantes, the Count of Monte Cristo himself, Gaspard Caderousse, who knows of Dantes's innocence but does nothing to help him, Monsieur de Villefort, the public prosecuter who sends Dantes to prison unjustly, Mercedes Herrera, Dantes's fiancee at the time he is imprisoned, Baron Danglers and Fernand Mondego, who falsely accuse Dantes of being a Bonapartist conspirator, and Albert de Moncerf, whose life was once saved by the Count.  

The minor characters of the book are listed and described in this section as well.
