Pericles Characters

Cleon is the Governor of Tarsus. A weak and passive man who tends to let things happen, and is under his wife Dionyza’s thumb.

He accepts to look after Pericles’s daughter when the latter leaves Marina with him, but however horrified he is fourteen years later when Dionyza has the girl killed, he does nothing other than expostulate a little. When Marina turns out to be alive and it becomes known what has happened, his people rise against him and burn him alive with his wife in his palace.
