Aram: lovable, innocent and easily influenced by Mourad. Cheerful and does not think of the consequences of his act.
Mourad: a kind and loving boy who has a way with animals. Steals the horse because he loves horses. Ready to give it back when he knows that the honesty of his tribe is questioned. A true member of the Garoghlanian tribe.
Uncle Khosrove: a very homesick person who yearns to be back in his motherland. Very short tempered and shouting. But it is his experiences which have made him so bitter. Losing his home and motherland is so terrible that losing anything else does not matter to him. He always feels that he is a foreigner in this land.
