Prospero's character blends that of the nobleman, the father, and the scholar. He gives orders casually, and expects them to be followed. He is proud, and can hold on to a grudge for years (witness how long he plans his return to power). However, he loves his daughter deeply, and wants to protect her from all harm, and acknowledges Ariel's service at the play's end.
