** Jem qualifies as well. As a kid going through puberty, he already has a lot of difficulties going on, and throughout the book his struggles keep piling up with seeing the reality and how horrifying it truly is and having him and his sister slowly grow apart. May be a JerkassWoobie given how him growing apart from Scout is somewhat his own fault. He also had genetic heart conditions that gave him an early death.

*** This is debateably ValuesResonance: while one would like to think that this is an example of wrong-headed thinking long since put aside, in fact it is still sadly common fort children in the American school system to be reprimanded or even punished for being more advanced than the system dictates. Any standardised system is going to let outliers down, and there will always be teachers who act according to the letter rather than the spirit of the education guidelines.

** In the film, Mayella's actress does a great job with a downcast, halting performance that reveals the character's internal conflict.

* ValuesResonance: Many of the book's messages and morals are resonant even in today's world. Discrimination against minorities in the US is still widespread, with more attention given nowadays due to the rise of social media platform.
** While not a focal point of the story, this book does show how damaging false rape accusations really are. This hasn't been a very big topic of discussion until TheNewTens where they're becoming more common.

* NeutralEvil: Bob Ewell. He sends an innocent man to his death and attempts to murder a child all out of sheer spite, bigotry, and selfishness. He's possibly the ultimate fictional example of the ordinary, everyday evil that any of us may well encounter.

* LaefulGood: Atticus Finch represents the moral ideal of both a lawyer and a human being: he is brutally honest, highly moral, a tireless crusader for good causes (even hopeless ones), and a virtual pacifist. He gets double points for maintaining his alignment despite being a lawyer in a society that is anything ''but'' LawfulGood. The American Legal Society chose this as the best law movie ever made because of him.
