Her actions cause hysteria in the town of Salem
At first tried to do good by figuring out who was practicing witchcraft

Parris similar to Danforth since he doesn’t want to fix their mistake since he does not want to ruin his name as a minister in Salem

Victim of her husband's affair with Abigail.
Is affected by the affair when Abigail decides to accuse her of witchcraft.

In the beginning he supports the whole idea of witchcraft
When Hale finally realizes that these accusations were fake, Danforth completely ignores Hale’s plea for justice and only thinks about his reputation.
The group member who ended up doing all the work in the project.
The group member who tries to input in some ideas but gets completely dismissed.

In the end he shows his true selfless character

Represents the theme choice versus consequence.
The group member who is forced to do all the tremendous amounts of work and has to carry all the weight of others in order for the entire group to pass.
The group member who tries to ruin things for others and causing problems not contributing to the group project.
The group member who makes a mistake, acknowledges it but fails or ignores to fix the problem which affects the rest of the groups’ marks.
The group member who don’t fix potential problems which makes things worse, and a person who takes advantage that they are in a group project and uses other people's work as their own. (Plagiarism)
Shows natural human qualities such as jealousy and ego, (shown from Abigail and Danforth)
Enhances the title of the play “ the Crucible” since all the characters we stated so far are all in a melting pot, one that can either corrupt them or purify them.
Natural feelings such as the fear of humiliation (from John Proctor)
Fear and death threats held the rest of the girls back from revealing the truth and as a result they too fall victims of the hysteria.
THANK YOU FOR LISTENING!
Thus all the characters displayed throughout our three archetypes, act as tool to help the audience relate to their daily lives. As it uses natural human qualities such as jealousy and ego, which can be found amongst all human beings.
