"How do the changes that individual characters go through relate to Prospero's overall transition from seeking vengeance to finding forgiveness?" 'Pose a central question of importance or significance to the play and the attempt to answer it in perhaps a variety of different ways or using a variety of different methods. Refer to the play to support your answer.' ARIEL portrayed as an asexual spirit with no human-like emotions
follows Prospero’s orders without contributing his personal opinion
desperate to be set free from Prospero  feeds his power
 keeps him omnipotent and stubborn ARIEL watching and hearing about the men from Ariel helps him familiarize himself with them ARIEL ARIEL shows more affection for Ariel is curious and perhaps wanting of human emotions

claims responsibility for Caliban
forgives all of the men; speaks to them directly CALIBAN CALIBAN “We are such stuff / As dreams are made on, and our little life / Is rounded with a sleep.” (IV.i.156-158) “These three have robb’d me, and this demi-devil – for he’s a bastard one – had plotted with them to take my life. Two of these fellows you must know and own; this thing of darkness I acknowledge mine.” (V.i.272-276) MIRANDA MIRANDA MIRANDA MIRANDA ARIEL to P FERDINAND FERDINAND FERDINAND FERDINAND M/F to P M/F to P M/F to P Receives apologies from Alonso regarding the incidents 12 years ago, but Alonso is silenced by Prospero Alonso + enemies were forgiven when he opened up to Ferdinand (idea of family and love softens his anger) Miranda is now his wife, and Prospero like his second father p

“This island’s mine by Sycorax my mother, which thou tak’st from me. When thou cam’st first thou strok’st me and made much of me… and then I lov’d thee, and show’d thee all the qualities o’th’ isle… Curs’d be I that did so!” (I.ii.332-339)
“You taught me language, and my profit on’t / Is I know how to curse.” (I.ii.362-363)
“I must obey. His art is of such power / It would control my dam’s god Setebos / And make a vassal of him.” (I.ii.372-374) Compassionate towards strangers

“Thou most lying slave… thou didst seek to violate / The honour of my child.” (I.ii.344-348)
“If thou neglect’st or dost unwillingly / What I command, I’ll rack thee with old cramps…” (I.ii.367-368) Reminiscing his hurtful past stirs up his emotions again - desire to seek revenge is driven even more
