Calpurnia is the Finch's negro cook. She is stern and disciplinary, and acts as the children’s bridge between the white and black communities.
Charles Baker "Dill" Harris
Dill is Scout and Jem's neighbour and friend who visits every summer. A confident boy with a strong imagination, he becomes fascinated with Boo Radley after hearing the rumours and tales surrounding his life.
Miss Maudie Atkinson
A neighbour and an old friend of the family, Miss Maudie shares Atticus’s passion for justice. She is the children’s "favourite" adult in Maycomb.
A drunken member of Maycomb’s poorest family, Bob Ewell is the father of Mayella Ewell. In wrongly accusing Tom Robinson of raping his daughter, Ewell represents the "dark side" of the South: ignorance, poverty, and racial prejudice.
Aunt Alexandra is the sister of Atticus and somewhat a antagonist in the novel in the eyes of Scout. She is a strong-willed woman with a huge level of devotion to her family. She believes in tradition and superiority, and this can sometimes cause clashes between her and Scout.
The black fieldworker accused of rape, Tom is one of the novel’s “mockingbirds,” an important symbol of innocence destroyed by evil.
