I like Link Deas. He balances out Atticus's very civil approach to Bob Ewell. Link Deas threatens Bob with what Bob can understand. Violence is something Bob uses for himself and directly exposes his weakness when threatened by a stronger man. When Link threatens Bob to stay away from Helen Robinson, it is rather satisfying.
