Mirza Baig and Ekene Anazodo, 7th period
Jonathan is the first character introduced in the novel, but ironically also one of the most boring characters in Dracula. He never really opens up and there is little to none character developement for him through out the novel. It's also quite funny how he's the first one to attack Dracula even though he's the least experienced fighter out of all the men in the novel. Besides the fact that he knows multiple languages, he's quite the normal englishmen of his era. He knows how to step up when the time comes, otherwise though he is quite reserved and quiet.
Mina is portrayed as a cunning and highly intelligent woman. She's a schoolteacher, which shows that she is independant and is not necessarily in need of someone to rely on. Mina even tags along with Jonathan in his studies, revealing her studious nature. The men in the novel described her as having a mens brain which would be a typical comment for an intelligent women in the victorian era. She's also seen as submissive, repeatedly letting the men in the story know how brave she thinks they are. You can say she shows good traits of both independent and submissive woman.
