Firstly, we can characterize Aram as being easily led. When Mourad arrives with a stolen horse, for example, Aram is happy to go along with it and ride the horse instead of convincing Mourad to return it. Moreover, he is a very determined person. It is Aram, for instance, who convinces Mourad to keep the horse so that he can learn to properly ride it.

As for Mourad, we see from the story that he is carefree and rebellious. This is shown by the fact that he has no qualms about stealing a horse, for example. In addition, he has a strong affinity with and love for animals.

Based on Aram's comments about Mourad's love of life, we also learn that Mourad is a vibrant and happy character. He is also a very honest person, which is shown by the fact that he returns the horse to its rightful owner.

Finally, Uncle Khosrove is so laid-back that when his house is set on fire, he does not leave the barber's shop to attend to it. Khosrove is, therefore, the sort of person who takes life as it comes. He does not believe in getting frustrated with life's events. For him, life is about drinking coffee with his friends, suggesting that he is both carefree and nonchalant. However, he does feel sadness about the loss of his homeland, which shows us that he has a strong sense of national and cultural identity.
