Never Let Me Go Characters Introduction PDF

Sr.No. Characters Details
1. Kathy – Kathy is the protagonist and narrator of the novel. She is a thirty-one-year-old clone who was raised to be an organ donor. During her childhood, Kathy is free-spirited, kind, loving, and stands up for what is right. At the end of the novel, Kathy is a young woman who does not show much emotion when looking back on her past. As an adult, she criticizes people less and is accepting of the lives of her friends.
2. Tommy – A male donor, and a childhood friend of Kathy’s. He is introduced as an uncreative and isolated young boy at Hailsham. He has a bad temper and is the object of many tricks played on him by the other children because of his short temper. Initially, he reacts by having bad temper tantrums, until Miss Lucy, a Hailsham guardian, tells him something that, for the short term, positively changes his life: it is okay if he is not creative. He feels great relief. Years later, Miss Lucy tells him that she should not have said what she did, and Tommy goes through another transformation. Once again upset by his lack of artistic skills, he becomes a quiet and sad teenager. As he matures, Tommy becomes a young man who is generally calm and thoughtful.
3. Ruth – A childhood friend of Kathy’s, Ruth is a female donor from Hailsham, described by Kathy as bossy. At the start of the novel, she is an extrovert with strong opinions and appears to be the center of social activity in her cohort; however, she is not as confident as the narrator initially perceived. She had hope for her future, but her hopes are crushed as she realises that she was born to be a donor and had no other future. At the Cottages, Ruth undergoes a transformation to become a more aware, thoughtful person who thinks about things in depth. She is constantly trying to fit in and be mature, repudiating things from her past if she perceives those things will negatively affect her image. She threw away her entire collection of art by fellow students, once her prized possessions because she sensed that the older kids at The Cottages looked down on it. She becomes an adult who is deeply unhappy and regretful. Ruth eventually gives up on all of her hopes and dreams, and tries to help Kathy and Tommy have a better life.
4. Madame (Marie-Claude) – A woman visits Hailsham to pick up the children’s artwork. Described as a mystery by the students at Hailsham. She appears professional and stern, and a young Kathy describes her as distant and forbidding. When the children decide to play a prank on her and swarm around her to see what she will do, they are shocked to discover that she seems disgusted by them. In a different circumstance, she silently watches Kathy dance to a song called “Never Let Me Go” and weeps at the sight. The two do not talk about it until years later; while Kathy interpreted the song’s meaning as a woman who cannot have a baby, Madame wept at the thought of clones not being permitted to live long, happy and healthy lives as humans do.
5. Miss Emily – Headmistress of Hailsham. Can be very sharp, according to Kathy. The children thought she had an extra sense that allowed her to know where a child was if they were hiding.
6. Miss Lucy – A teacher at Hailsham that the children feel comfortable with. She is one of the younger teachers at Hailsham, and tells the students very frankly that they exist only for organ donation. She feels a lot of stress while at Hailsham and is fired for what she tells the students.
7. Miss Geraldine – A guardian at Hailsham. Miss Geraldine works with younger students with teaching art.
8. Chrissie – Another female donor, who is slightly older than the three main characters and was with them at the Cottages. She and her boyfriend, Rodney, were the ones who found Ruth’s possible (the person from whom Ruth might have been cloned), and took Kathy, Tommy, and Ruth to Norfolk. She completes (i.e. dies because of her organ donations) before the book ends.
9. Rodney – Chrissie’s boyfriend, he was the one who originally saw Ruth’s possible. He and Chrissie are mentioned to have broken up before she completed.

Plot Summary of Never Let Me Go PDF

Never Let Me Go is a novel by Kazuo Ishiguro. It was published in 2005 but is set in the 1990s. However, Ishiguro’s version of 1990s society is not one that readers will recognize. A dystopia exists where many individuals are cloned from other people in order to be used as organ donors.

The narrator Kathy H is an adult who is looking back at events that occurred when she was a pupil at Hailsham school. Her narration often leaps from the past to the present. Kathy and her friends, Ruth and Tommy, along with all the other pupils at Hailsham, are among those who have been cloned for the purpose of organ donation.

Completion, (or death) usually occurs after the fourth organ donation. As the novel progresses it becomes clear that initially Kathy and her friends have not fully comprehended what the future has in store for them.

It is not until Miss Lucy, one of their guardians, explains clearly that there is no point in Hailsham pupils planning future careers, that they begin to face the reality of their situation.

The novel follows Kathy, Ruth, and Tommy as they leave Hailsham and begin their lives as adults. Kathy becomes a carer, looking after those who have already donated until it’s time for her too to become a donor.
