King Lear Characters

The Old Man has been a retainer of the Earl of Gloucester all his life, over eighty years. 

He helps to guide Gloucester away from his house, and tries to remain with him, but is pushed away. When Gloucester decides to be guided by the mad beggar they come across, and asks the Old Man to bring Tom some clothes, he pledges to bring the very best he has. He is a deeply loyal man, and is desperate to help Gloucester any way he can.
