    In To Kill a Mocking Bird Jean Louise “Scout” Finch - The narrator and protagonist of the story. Scout lives with her father, Atticus, her brother, Jem, and their black cook, Calpurnia, in Maycomb. She is intelligent and, by the standards of her time and place, a tomboy. Scout has a combative streak and a basic faith in the goodness of the people in her community. As the novel progresses, this faith is tested by the hatred and prejudice that emerge during Tom Robinson’s trial. Scout eventually develops a more grown-up perspective that enables her to appreciate human goodness without ignoring human evil.

    Scout is named Jean Louise, and lives with her widowed father Atticus, her older brother Jem and their cook Calpurnia, in the town of Maycomb, which has many racist inhabitants. Scout is a tomboy, by that time's standards, but also posesses the childlike faith of goodness in everybody. She is intelligent, and strong headed, and enjoys being surprised and scared, by the story of Boo Radley especially. Because of the charges against Tom Robinson she soon realises that she can appreciate human goodness without ignoring their evil too, which is a more mature view. Scout is the protagonist and develops from a childish character entranced with stories to a girl who has a more realistic sense of the world, its evils and its goodness.
