High School Teacher
The main conflict in the story is Daru's internal struggle with having to turn the Arab prisoner over to French authorities. He does not want to take sides. He does not want to turn the prisoner in but he has been ordered to do so. His dilemma is whether or not to do as he is told, or to do as he wants. If he does as he is told he will escort the prisoner to the French for a trial, if he does as he wants he will remain neutral and let the prisoner go.
