Smart and Loyal

Tranio is Lucentio's "trusty" servant. Unlike the other servants, he is smart , loyal, and act as a kind of surrogate father or mentor to Lucentio. Tranio gives example and advices like "forget studying you should meet some girls while your in Padua and "Hey why dont you impersonate a teacher so you can get close to Bianca". He assumes Lucentio's indentity and bargains with Baptista for Bianca's hand. Tranio is really Indulgent and agrees to traipse around the town pretending to be Lucentio so that the real Lucentio can run around as the tutor "Cambio" while he pursues Bianca.
