Nym is a corporal in the army, and one of Falstaff’s former companions.
He had been engaged to Hostess Quickly, and is downcast and angered that she married Pistol instead. He admires the King even though he blames him for Falstaff’s death. He is a lamentable failure as a soldier, as he prefers robbing and keeping away from the fight. He is not very talkative. Caught thieving in France, he is hanged for his pains.
