That's a lot. There is more detail to this but I'll be brief. Keep in mind that the story is written in first person, limited omniscient.

Tom Robinson- scared, sad

Tom Ewell- full of hate, happy because he is getting attention, paranoid of Atticus’s questions.

Mayella- Scared, unsure, paranoid of Atticus's questions, angry at her father...

Scout- proud of father, empathy for Tom, anger against Bob, sympathy for Mayella.

Dill - Same as Scout but more hurt and angry at Jury

Sheriff- understands injustice, does not want civil unrest

Jury- knows the truth, internal struggle between what is right and their bigotry

Black Community- hurt, powerless, thankful to Atticus

Judge- Knows the truth, sad at jury's verdict, frustrated with Bob and Mayella

There is more to this but that's the simple version. Good luck.
