Mustapha Mond

  • Affably Evil: Mustapha Mond is eloquent and polite as he explains the workings of the World Society to the Savage.
  • Anti-Villain: Despite being at the head of the dystopian society of the book, he doesn't come off as a cackling madman, but a person who simply does what he believes needs to be done.
  • The Chains of Commanding: Running a dystopia isn't as easy as it looks.
  • Dark Messiah: Hmmm, let's see. First of all, "Mond" means moon. His inferiors reference him by the title "fordship." Then, there's his extremist philosophies. But perhaps most significantly, he consciously - throughout the novel, he continuously demonstrates himself as possibly the most anthropologically versed person in the entire world - likens himself to Jesus through his perversion of the biblical quote "Suffer [the] little children."
    • It's probable his first name refers to Mustapha Kemal Ataturk, the founder of Turkey who modernized and westernized it, or that it's meant as a bilingual pun: Mustapha Mond — "Must-have" "the World".
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist
  • Wicked Cultured: He quotes Shakespeare at the Savage, who expresses surprise that someone else knows the author.
