WE really are given limited knowledge on these people. Kurtz had an "intended". This was presumably his intended fiancé in Europe. She was idealistic about imperialism and rather naive about what Kurtz had done or the type of man he was. Kurtz's African lover seems to have a strong presence. She is lavished with jewelry displaying her importance through Kurtz. His white "intended" also derives importance through Kurtz but it is much more mild almost impotent. THe African mistress seems to have a much more savage and intense connection with Kurtz.
