5: Most Dramatic Nelly | Nelly | 'You villain!' I began to cry, 'you villain!'-Nelly Chp. 27
6: Most Sensitive Edgar | Edgar stood on the hearth weeping silently, and in the middle of the table sat a little dog, shaking its paw and yelping; which, from their mutual accusations, we understood they had nearly pulled in two between them.
7: Most Talkative Joseph | 'Noa!' said Joseph, giving a thud with his prop on the floor, and assuming an authoritative air. 'Noa! that means naught. Hathecliff maks noa 'count o' t' mother, nor ye norther; but he'll heu' his lad; und I mun tak' him - soa now ye knaw!'
8: Most dependable Hareton | 'If you strike me, Hareton will strike you,' she said; 'so you may as well sit down.'
9: Linton Most Dramatic | Cathy, beside herself, gave the chair a violent push, and caused him to fall against one arm. He was immediately seized by a suffocating cough that soon ended his triumph. It lasted so long that it frightened even me.
10: Isabella Most likely to be hurt | I'd as soon put that little canary into the park on a winter's day, as recommend you to bestow your heart on him!...He's not a rough diamond--a pearl-containing oyster of a rustic: he's a fierce, pitiless, wolfish man p.109 | Hindley Biggest Partier
11: He neither wept nor prayed; he cursed and defied: execrated God and man, and gave himself up to reckless dissipation. The servants could not bear his tyrannical and evil conduct long... Chpt. 8 | Biggest Partier Hindley
12: Heathcliff is the most revengeful because after Mr. Earnshaw died Hindley turned Heathcliff into a slave. Then Catherine marries Edgar instead of him. He takes his revenge out on those who hurt him, by punishing their children. His revenge eventually drives him mad and kills him. | Catherine was defiantly the most lovable throughout the book. In the beginning of the book Heathcliff falls in love with her, but is soon hurt when she says she can not marry him because he is too low of standards. Instead she decides to marry Edgar who is in love with her as well | Cathy is most likely to succeed because she is the only one in the book who ends up being happy. She is Catherine’s daughter and Heathcliff says that they have the same eyes. By the end of the book she ends up being happy married to Hareton. | Nelly is the second narrator of the book after Lockwood. She is in every part of the story and has to be a part of everything. She is very dramatic in everything that she says and does and has to put her nose into everything. | Edgar is the most sensitive throughout the book. In the book he is portrayed as one of the men that are not as strong. He is also not willing to stick up for himself to people that try and take advantage of him.
13: Hareton is the most dependable throughout the book even though he catches the punishment from Heathcliff that his father deserved. He is raised by Nelly and this may be where he learns his dependability from. He is dependable to everyone in the book that relies on him. Even after how bad heathcliff treated him Hareton still treated him like a father and cried when he died. | Linton is the most dramatic male in the book Wuthering Heights. Even though Nelly is the most dramatic female Linton is next in line to her amount of drama. Being the most dramatic male is not the best superlative to have, but he is a girl about everything. | Hindley is the most likely to be the biggest partier. He is a very bad alcoholic which occurred soon after his wife Frances died after delivering his son. He is such an alcoholic that he became drunk and dropped his son over the banister who is saved by Heathcliff. | Isabella is the most likely to be hurt because she is not very intelligent. Heathcliff killed her dog and she still decides to marry him. This leads to her being hurt because Heathcliff did not truly love her, he just married her for financial gain. | Joseph is the most talkative even though he does not have that many spots in the book. He is very religious and is constantly talking about the Bible. When he talks he is very hard to be understood because of his accent.
