As You Like It Characters

Corin is an old shepherd in the Forest of Arden. He does not own the sheep he tends, as he is another man’s worker. 

When a young man learns that Corin’s employer is selling his house and livelihood from under him, and offers to buy it and to continue Corin’s employment, the old man is happy to act as intermediary in the sale. He is a realist, and does not consider himself any worse than a greater man, recognizing that different levels of society require different ways of being, and being perfectly content with the ways required by his shepherd’s life. He does not let himself get overly drawn in to Touchstone’s games of wit.
