One example of people not always being as they seem in To Kill a Mockingbird is Atticus Finch. His character is presented as a man who is cautious and careful, very laid-back and non-confrontational. However, Finch is known as the best shot in the county as demonstrated when he was called to shoot the rabid dog. He willing took the case of the black man accused of raping a white girl, and he handled the mob outside the jail who came for the sole purpose of hanging the black man. He definitely demonstrated more courage and strength than the author demonstrated in the beginning of the story.
