The Tempest Characters

Ferdinand is Alonso’s son. Cast up on his own on the island after the wreck, he is convinced that his father has drowned, not least by Ariel’s songs. 

He comes across Miranda and falls head over heels in love with her at first sight. He accepts his enforced servitude to Prospero for her sake, and his willingness gains him her hand. He is a fine specimen of a human being, plays chess, and assures Prospero that he doesn’t approve of pre-marital sex.
