Marie St. Clare
Augustine's wife, who was once a popular Southern belle. Now, she is a hypochondiac who cares about no one but herself. She disapproves of her husband and daughter's close relations with the slaves and sells Tom and eleven others when her husband dies.
St. Clare's northern cousin who comes to help him run the plantation affairs. St. Clare buys Ophelia a slave so she can have a "missionary project" of her own. At first Ophelia dislikes Topsy, but her feelings of racial superiority are eventually broken by the friendship she forms with the needy little girl.
Mr. Adolph is a slave who possesses a higher status than Uncle Tom, who is respected and loved by all who know him............ except those people of higher status. Personality wise, Tom is an upbeat optimist, whereas Adolph is extremely negative.
Mammy is an old black slave that serves Eva's mother.
