The Merry Wives of Windsor Characters

Host of the Garter Inn is a rather merry innkeeper who is incapable of saying anything simply and likes showing off how many words he knows. 

Though he enjoys mocking foreigners, he likes both Evans and Caius and does not want to see them skewer one another, though he perhaps has too much fun making fools of them to stop their duel. He is not quite cautious enough to avoid having his horses stolen from him by some conmen, and the loss of money that represents leaves him open to Fenton’s promises of payment if he arranges the young man’s secret wedding with Anne. He likes playing tricks, for instance introducing the disguised Ford to Falstaff.
