The Taming of the Shrew Characters

A Pedant is a schoolmaster from Mantua, on a trip to Rome and Tripoli. 

He meets a young man in Padua who warns him that there is war between Padua and Mantua, and convinces him to pretend to be Vincentio of Pisa, who happens to be the young man’s father, for his safety. In return, he accepts to broker a marriage between the young man and his beloved. When the real Vincentio comes knocking at the door, he sticks to his role, accusing the real one of trying to cozen people under his name.
