Here we come to the Topsy. This little girl makes a very big impact on Miss Ophelia. Topsy is a slave girl whom St. Clare bought for Miss Ophelia to reform. Being mistreated all her life, Topsy acts like the jovial, mischievous kid. She does not care at all about what white people or slaves think of her. Topsy finally learns about love from Little Eva and moves to the North with Miss Ophelia at the end of the novel. To sum it up, her character is very dynamic as she changed a lot during her lifetime in the book.
