Charles Baker Harris aka. Dill

Charles Baker Harris first comes to Maycomb County at the age of six and he is very proud to say that he can read. From that summer on he was to stay at his aunt's house. Dill is very small for his age and also very intelligent. He has an active imagination and a keen sense of adventure;something always draws him back to Boo Radley's house. Soon after meeting with Scout and Jem, Dill declares that he is going to one day marry Jean Louise. He quickly becomes her best friend and along with Jem, the three of them are always up to some trouble. Dill thinks his family is less than perfect and is virtually ignored by his parents. One summer he gets fed up and runs away to the refudge of Jean Louise's bedroom.
