Narrator (Sergeant X)
• First half of story, he is a first-person narrator. Gentle and optimistic
• Second half of story, he is Sergeant X, broken down and changed by wartime. So disguised (as Sergeant X), that we can't recognize him (changed a lot from war)
Clay (Corporal Z)
• Sergeant Z's (narrator's) somewhat "war buddy."
• Opposite of narrator - cheerful and emotionally untouched by the war. Although he may not understand Sergeant X's condition, he is sympathetic towards him
• Five years old, Esmé's brother. Far less polished than Esmé. He is a little kid, unaware of the horror that has happened in his life. Contains total innocence and blissful ignorance.
