I'm not sure if you mean separately or all the people together? Because they are so different I'll do them separately.

judge Taylor- fair and progressive: He knew the only way Tom could get a fair trial was through Atticus. He wasn't bound by the racism of the South.

Dolphus Raymond- eccentric and independent:Married a black lady and drinks Coke out of a paper bag.

Bob Ewell- Evil and stupid: Ewell chooses to be ignorant which makes him stupid. He is evil in the sense that he does unspeakable things to people he should care about.

Mayella Ewell- tragic and sad: Mayella's situation is sad and tragic. Just think about it.

Heck Tate- Fair and responsible: He seems just and a friend of Atticus. That's enough for me.

Mr. Gilmer- passionate and individualistic: Has his own sense of right and wrong. Watches Atticus's back at the court house.
