Guy Montag

"Fireman" that takes a stand.

Direct Characterization: Brave

In the book "Fahrenheit 451" Guy Montag is directly characterized as brave. Faber, his old English teacher, tells him that he is brave. He explains that he (Faber) is cowardly because he is going to be somewhat safe in his home, while Montag has to go and do the dirty work.

Indirect Characterization: Kind

Montag is nice to everyone even though they probably aren't to him. Mildred sold him out and doesn't pay attention to him but he still treats her kindly. When he killed Beatty he was extremely sorry.
