This handsome guy is a master of Thornfield and employer for Jane. By the way, he is a person whom Jane loves very much. He is wealthy. If he lived in the 21st century, he could buy several yachts and houses. Nevertheless, he is the one who has a dark secret from his past; exactly his story makes the biggest suspense in the story. He is polite, gentle, and unconventional. Also, what’s very important – he doesn’t feel that he is “the god” in the world. Conversely, he speaks with a simple governess Jane as with an equal person. During all the story we feel sympathetic to him even after discovering his secret.
