We see the Inspector as both commanding and authoritative from the moment he comes on the scene. He is “at once an impression of massiveness, solidity and purposefulness," and doesn't allow either the Birling family or Gerald to manipulate him or take him off course. Priestly presents the Inspector as confidant, tough, and tenacious.
