Pericles Characters

Pander is a pimp running a brothel in Mytilene. He sends Boult to buy new women at the market, as those he already has are all rotted with venereal diseases. 

He lets his wife the Bawd take care of the prostitutes, while he looks after the money. He is unsentimental and makes no pretences about his job. Purchasing Marina for the high price he can get for selling her virginity, he is soon driven to distraction by how she instead turns all of his best and richest clients into virtuous men.
