Storyboard Text

  • Amir
  • Amir is the main character of the story, his father Baba is a rich man so Amir has grown up his entire life having everything he wants. Except his father's love and attention. Amir constantly feels jealousy towards anyone who takes his father's attention away from him which explains how he acts towards Hassan. Amir treats Hassan like he is beneath him and takes advantage of him many times. 
  • "Then I saw Baba on our roof. He was standing on the edge, pumping both of his fists. Hollering and clapping. And that right there was the single greatest moment of my twelve years of life, seeing Baba on that roof, proud of me at last." 
  • Baba
  • "Now, no matter what the mullah teaches, there is only one sin, only one. And that is theft. Every other sin is a variation of theft. Do you understand that?"
  • Amir describes his father as a very large man. He says his arms are very large, has a wide chest and a very full beard. He likes climbing into his father's arms and burying himself in his father's chest
  • Baba is a man who believes that you should always do the right thing. Baba and Amir are distant and do not really connect as much as Baba and Hassan do. Baba finds it hard to believe that Amir is his actual son but teaches him the importance of doing the right thing. 
  • Ali
  • "It is modest and not worthy of you, Amir Agha"  "But, Agha sahib, tell them who was the architect of the mischief and who the poor laborer?"
  • "Ali had congenital paralysis of his lower face muscles, a condition that rendered him unable to smile and left him perpetually grim-faced." "But polio had left Ali with a twisted, atrophied right leg that was sallow skin over bone with little in between except a paper-thin layer of muscle"
  • Ali is a good and honest person. Ali is Baba's servant and is always loyal to Baba despite some circumstances. Ali and Baba are like brothers and have been through a lot together. Hassan and Amir love to listen to Ali sing and say that he has a beautiful voice.
