Fleur Pillager 1 Character Analysis ofF leur Pillager Fleur Pillage is the most extraordinary character in this story. She is not only physically powerful, but also spiritually strong. She is strong willed and resolute to live her life as she wants to. She never listens to the town or tribal gossip about her and let it repress her.
People pretty much stay out of her way because she is extremely diverse. They are too afraid to try to understand her or get to know her. Her life force is drawn from the milieu. Her spirit seems to be analogous with nature. The immense energy of nature is a mystery and Fleur seems to have some power to control it, this also make her an ambiguity. The two traits that I most admire about her are the fact that she is an enigma and that she has a supernatural amount of patience.
Mystery has always surrounded her. She has lived alone most of her life which is uncommon for a women of her age and from that time period. The people of the town did not believe that she lived alone. They always thought that she was a mistress to the monster of the lake or cursed by it.
Some think that the monster wants her. This theory is established in the two drowning incidents. There is an incredible amount of paradox in this situation when people try to save her life but eventfully wound up taking her place. She reminds me of a tiger, in that the tiger is described as having a breathless amount of patience when stalking its prey and always waits until its prey is in the most vulnerable position. This trait is shown in her skill to play cards. In each game that she played she would start with a dollar and end up with a dollar.
The coincidence of her luck and the Fleur Pillage 2 eeriness of her nature also left the men at the table in awe of her abilities. This caused the men to become ultimately disturbed and livid. After she is attacked by the three men, I believe that she holds some power that allows her to seek vengeance on those who try to harm her. The town is almost destroyed the tornado and the three men where found frozen in Kozka's butchery. The mystery is that whether these occurrences are amazing coincidence or is it the wrath of her vengeance.
I like the fact that no one could quite comprehend her, not even her one friend Pauline. She is an enigma that no one can solve and no one is meant to. No one knows were she came from, they just knew that their lives would be altered forever. The way the story ends is also a mystery because she goes off to live on the lake and gives birth to a child with dark coppery skin and green eyes. It leaves the reader on the edge of their seat wondering what is going to happen next and it gives the reader the opportunity to create his or her own ending.
