At the start of the book, Crispin is passive and uneducated peasant. He's oppressed and expects little out of life. He's sad when his mother dies, but to be honest, it fits with what he expects of the world, which is for little good to happen. He has also seen little of the world. As a result, he challenges little, either literally or conceptually.

By the end of the book, Crispin has changed markedly. He not only fights for what he thinks is right, he fights to save his friend Bear. He demonstrates a vivid and flexible mind, and he can conceive of alternatives to the current reality.
