Henry VI, Part 2 Characters

Dick the Butcher is a large, physically powerful man, essentially Cade’s second-in-command, though he clearly does not believe a word of Cade’s claims to noble blood, or misunderstands Cade’s intentions entirely, as he tries to build up Cade’s credibility by pointing out what a criminal he is. 

He joins the rebellion for the joy of anarchy, a chance to kill lawyers and have his way with women. He enjoys killing. In the end, he is easily swayed and convinced to abandon Cade.
