Father of Jem and Scout. Lover of peace, justice, and quiet reading time. Who feels everyone is equal, a fair trial should be given to all, and that true courage does not come at the end of a gun. Who fears he is a terrible father, the racism of society will grow and that the defenseless will be abused. Who would like his sister to keep her opinions to herself, To live in an unprejudiced society, And for reason to reign over blind ignorance. Resident of Maycomb, Alabama, Finch.
