    Jewel: Daughter of a Dutch-Malay woman and a white European man, never named, who deserted them. As the war continued, Kurtz kept winning battles and becoming stronger — and it was this strength that made him threatening to the Army, just as Conrad's Kurtz who brings in more ivory than all other stations combined unnerves the Manager. Wracked with guilt, Jim confesses his shame to Marlow, who finds him a place to live in a friend's home. Doramin uses his flintlock pistols, given him by Stein, to shoot Jim in the chest. Dain Waris: The only son of Doramin; a young, strong, and fiercely devoted leader of his people.

The reader is left to form an impression of Jim's interior psychological state from these multiple external points of view. To be ironic is to be awake—and alert to the prevailing "somnolence. She dislikes Calvin's attitude and his insistence on worrying about his son.

Captain Gustav: Captain of the Patna, an Australian born in Germany, who is interested in the money made from this ship, with no concern for his honour as a captain. This structure, however, also gives the book a reverse coming-of-age feel.
