    I believe character is the component of all pieces of one’s personality that affect others and the world in a positive way. Character should be free from selfishness, because if you are only maintaining what appears to be “good character” in the hopes of boosting your own goals, that is not really character at all. I believe that I possess a strong character that strives to improve the lives of those around me. The main pieces that make up my character are faith, courage, and the desire to improve

Sheila matures over the course of the play and her change is much more dramatic than other characters in the play. As the play is set in 1912, it could be argued that Priestley uses these changes to suggest the forthcoming changes after the war: before WWII, everyone was rather ignorant but the catastrophes of the war acted as an eye-opener for
