Sir Thomas More Characters

John Lincoln is a hot-tempered Londoner growing more and more discontented with the abuses of the foreigners. 

A poor man, he is nevertheless an excellent orator and writer, and spearheads the complaints that result in the rioting. Though he begins reasonably, he quickly becomes a rabble-rousing leader using the most inane of arguments to whip up the xenophobia of his followers. He almost loses control of the mob, but with them he is calmed down by More’s arguments. A brave man, he accepts the verdict on him, and when he is hanged he jumps from the scaffold rather than having to be pushed.
