Hedda is a very selfish ,and cold character, because she is the daughter of General Gabler, and General Gabler is very rich and famous, therefore Hedda has better living than other people, she does not worry about necessities. From the beginning, she is set to get married with Jurgen Tesman, and they just came back from their honeymoon. Jugen Tesman does not rich as Hedda, but he is a scholar and a nice future. In the play, Hedda is not afraid to using her friends even her husband. But Tesman does not know it, because Tesman is a very purl scholar, and very young, therefore he is not aware that Hedda is trying to manipulating him. Hedda is a cold character. she can make her become a victimizer. The whole play is completely under her willfulness.
Jurgen Tesman is a very young scholar, he looks very purl and easy to get cheated by people, he is Hedda's husband, Hadda and him are two different world's people, in the play, he is cheated and manipulated by Hedda, but he is not realized it. His aunt is Juliane Tesman, she is an important, because she is the one raised Jurgen Tesman after he lost his parents. She is helping Tesman, and telling him that he should try to have a baby with Hedda. She is a well
She is well-meaning, and she is constantly hinting that Tesman and Hedda should have a baby. Aunt Julle tries to get along with Hedda, but the difference in their class
backgrounds is painfully apparent. Aunt Julle lives with the ailing Aunt Rina, another aunt of Tesman's.
George Tesman is a well-intentioned young man on his way to becoming a harmless drudge. He is a research scholar whose chief abilities, ''collecting and arranging,'' are more clerical than insightful. He also seems more devoted to the minutia of history, the domestic industries of medieval Brabant, than he is to his wife, Hedda, around whom he usually seems doltish and imperceptive. He is unaware, for example, that she is pregnant, a fact that does not escape his Aunt Juliana.
Judge Brack - Brack is a judge of relatively inferior rank. He is a friend of both Tesman* and Hedda, and he visits their house regularly. He has connections around the city, and is often the first to give Tesman information about alterations in the possibility of his professorship. He seems to enjoy meddling in other people's affairs. He is a worldly and cynical man.
Judge Brack hides his desire for an intimate relationship with Hedda with an outward friendship for George Tesman and a cloak of respectability. He is, in truth, quite sinister and unprincipled, a sophisticated stalker who awaits an opportunity to seduce Hedda, to become the ''one cock in the basket.''
Brack is particularly dangerous because he is a fair judge of character, except, finally, in Hedda's case. He is genuinely shocked by her suicide, something he did not anticipate would result from his success in maneuvering her into a compromising position
Ejlert Lövborg - A genius, Ejlert Lövoborg is Tesman* biggest competitor in the academic world. After a series of scandals related to drinking, he was once a public outcast but has now returned to the city and has published a book to rave reviews. He also has another manuscript that is even more promising. Mrs. Elvsted helped him with both manuscripts. He once shared a close relationship with Hedda.
Eilert Lovborg is George Tesman's potential nemesis. Unlike Tesman, he is both a visionary and genius, but he is cursed with an inability to moderate his behavior. He carries disreputability on his back, luggage from a past in which he ruined his reputation by unspecified but dissolute conduct. However, when he first appears, he has renewed hopes. He has been inspired by Thea Elvsted, who has both prompted his reformation and been his able assistant in his scholarship and writing. He has also published a successful book and is close to finishing its more brilliant sequel.
Mrs. Elvsted - Mrs. Elvsted is a meek but passionate woman. She and her husband hired Ejlert Lövborg as a tutor to their children, and Mrs. Elvsted grew attached to Ejlert, acting as his personal secretary and aiding him in his research and writing. When Ejlert leaves her estate to return to the city, Mrs. Elvsted comes to town and goes to Tesman* for help, fearing Ejlert will revert to his alcoholism. Mrs. Elvsted went to school with Hedda and remembers being tormented by her.
During the course of Hedda Gabler, Thea confesses that she has fled from her loveless and boorish husband, Sheriff Elvsted, and her stepchildren, destroying her reputation to follow Eilert Lovborg to Christiania. For the prior two years, she had both reformed the debauched Lovborg and inspired his new work. Despite her great influence on the brilliant Eilert, her hopes of securing his love are faint. A shadow sits on their relationship: Eilert's residual feelings for a former lover, who, unbeknownst to Thea, is Hedda Gabler.
Berte - Berte is George* and Hedda Tesman's servant. Formerly, she was the servant in Juliane Tesman's household. She tries very hard to please Hedda, her new mistress, but Hedda is quite dissatisfied with her.
Berta is the Tesmans' middle-aged, maid. She is a loyal family retainer, formerly employed by George Tesman's maiden aunts but now in the service of George and Hedda at their newly purchased villa. Her closeness to Juliana Tesman makes her a minor threat to Hedda, who intensely dislikes George's aunt. Early on, Hedda threatens to discharge Berta, partly to discomfort George, but also because she clearly identifies Berta with George's family and its deeply affectionate binds that Hedda loathes.
Aunt Rina - Aunt Rina is dying at the start of the play. She never appears onstage. She helped Aunt Julle raise Tesman*
