Troy is a tragic-hero; he sees himself as a good provider but carries a major chip on his shoulder. He was once a great baseball player in the Negro Leagues, but he was too old to join the Major Leagues when they were integrated. His past mistakes and failures greatly influence his outlook on life and his relationship with his sons. He sees himself as a sacrifice so his sons can do better.
