Mephistopheles helps Faust both trick and bribe Margaret into falling in love with him (Faust). Margaret falls prey to Faust’s requests even though they are against her moral nature. Mephistopheles helps Faust trick her into trusting Faust. He gives Margaret gifts and tricks her into giving her mother a sleeping potion so he can take sexual advantage of her.
