Henry 4, Part 2 Characters

Doll Tearsheet is a whore who is a particular favorite of Falstaff’s. She is drunken and has a remarkably foul mouth. 

She is fond of Falstaff, or at least makes a good show of it; she is also fond of raging at him. She is arrested and sentenced to be whipped for whoring at the end of the play, though she puts up a good fight (at least in words) against the beadles come to take her. She displeases Hostess Quickly by ending up pregnant, and is accused of having helped Pistol beat a man who later died of his injuries. She is quite good-looking, as common harlots go.
