Atticus Finch

The TV Character type holds fictional characters from television shows.  Each character, even ones with common names (such as "Mr. Smith") should be a separate topic for each TV show, unless the character really is the same between two shows (such as "James T. Kirk").Non-fiction tv appearances (such as game show hosts, news anchors, talk show guests, etc.) should use the type "TV Personality".

Fair

One morning Jem and I found a load of stovewood in the back yard. Later, a sack of hickory nuts appeared on the back steps. With Christmas came a crate of smilax and holly. That spring when we found a crokersack full of turnip greens, Atticus said Mr. Cunningham had more than paid him. p26, Atticus understands that the Cunninghams cannot pay for his services in the normal manner and is willing to let them pay in their own time.

Understanding

"If spitting in my face and threatening me saved Mayella Ewell one extra beating, that's something I'll gladly take.", Bob Ewell spits on him but Atticus does not retaliate, even though he had every right to. Atticus understands the consequences of Bob Ewell's actions even if they were wrong.
