Measure for Measure Characters

Barnardine is a murderer who has been in jail for nine years without being executed. 

Slothful and drunken, he has rich and powerful friends who have helped him stay alive. The ultimate individualist, he simply refuses to be executed while he’s hung over; since this is his permanent state, he remains alive to this day. He is completely unafraid of death or any form of punishment.
