John Proctor is well respected in the community and has a lot of confidence and pride.
His confidence and good looks are his downfall as he becomes unhappy with his wife.
John breaks up with Abagail and she becomes an antagonist as she says john's wife is a witch.
John Proctor has a family and a newborn baby. He comes from good money and many people in the community know him as a good guy.He is very helpful, but charms people with his good looks.
John chooses death over admitting lies.
John wants something more because he thinks he deserves more. He begins seeing a young girl named Abigail and they have an affair and she becomes attached to his good looks and personality.
Order is restored.
Abigail wants John all to herself so she lies to the public and says John's wife is a witch. He leaves her and finds himself defending his wife to the council, exposing himself that he was having an affair.
The council puts John on trial to admit to his sins and they accuse him of witch craft. He says he would rather die in truth than live a lie. So in spite of having a family, the council hangs him, as it was his choice.
After John's death, people from other places tell the people that witch craft is not real. They stop hanging people and everyone is safe now.
