Rainsford Characterization

Storyboard Text

  • The Most Dangerous Game Richard Connell
  • "'Pistol shot,"
  • "Where there are pistol shots, there are men. Where there are men, there is food."
  • "Rainsford! How did you get in here?"
  • "Prepare yourself General Zaroff"
  • "Swam, I found it quicker than walking through the jungle"
  • The story of The Most Dangerous Game takes place on a "cursed" island called "Ship-Trap Island." This is Rainsford, one of the main characters. He is Clever, Fit, and quite Skilled in his department of hunting
  • This is one example of Rainsford's fitness
  • There are a few great examples of Rainsford being clever. This one being the fact that his clever and logical thought process led him to civilization
  • "Let me congratulate you," said Zaroff, after he was hit by the trap, "Not many men know how to make a Malay man catcher." This shows Rainsford's knowledge and skill of and in the hunt.
  • At the end of the story, it is revealed that Rainsford hid within Zaroff's room to confront him. He did this after tricking Zaroff into thinking him dead. Another example of Rainsford's cleverness
  • oh no...
  • In order to get to the room in the first place, Rainsford had to not only swim, but climb in order to reach the chateau 
  • During the hunt, Rainsford made a very particular trap. This trap actually worked and injured Zaroff
  • A final example of Rainsford's cleverness is found when he sets a very complex trap for Zaroff, and takes out the brute Ivan
  • "General Zaroff was still on his feet. But Ivan was not. The knife, driven by the recoil of the spring tree, had not wholly failed."
