The most important qualities Rainsford has can be inferred from the way he performs in his contest with Zaroff. Some of them are:
- He is very determined. At many times during the hunt, Rainsford might have given up in despair. Of course, he does not. Instead he perseveres and ultimately wins.
- He is ingenious. If he had not been so creative and clever, he would not have been able to devise the traps that allow him to win.
- He is ruthless. He shows this ruthlessness in his willingness to do whatever it takes to survive.
