It was times like these when I thought my father, who hated guns and had never been to any wars, was the bravest man who ever lived.
~ Scout about her father, Atticus.

Jean Louise Finch, also known by the nickname Scout or Scout Finch, is the central protagonist of To Kill a Mockingbird and the main protagonist of its first-draft/sequel Go Set a Watchman.

In the film adaptation of To Kill a Mockingbird, she was portrayed by Mary Badham.

Character

Jean Louise Finch is very different from the girls in her neighborhood. She is a tomboy who roughhouses with her brother Jem, and abhors wearing dresses, preferring to wear a shirt with denim overalls.

Relationships

  • Atticus Finch: Since they are advocates for equality for all races, Jean Louise Finch and her father Atticus support each other. Scout and her brother Jem even became angry that Tom Robinson had to die just because he was black, and that his prosecutors, the Ewells, framed him for raping Bob Ewell's daughter.
  • Jeremy Atticus "Jem" Finch: Scout and Jem are best friends, playing together often. They are fascinated by Boo Radley. The duo and their father Atticus tried to defend Tom Robinson, but their attempts, despite being very strong, proved futile, since racism had rigged the case.
  • Charles "Dill" Baker-Harris: Dill Harris is best friends with Scout and Jem, and is by far the most interested in Boo Radley, and the most determined to draw Boo out of his home. At one point, Dill proposes to Scout and kisses her, and they agree to marry as adults.
  • Arthur Radley: While their fantasies claim that his personality is cruel, Arthur "Boo" Radley is really a good person. He once put a blanket on Scout, and even saved her life from Bob Ewell's attack.
  • The Ewells: The Ewells are Scout's nemesēs, being white trash people who cannot be trusted. Bob's daughter, Mayella, made sexual advances towards Tom, before her father saw what she was doing and beat her. Because Tom was black, Bob reversed Tom's and Mayella's roles during the court trial.
