Bissinger, there are several prominent characters who display vivid and unique characteristics.However, one character remains dominant as a person with ethics as he battles with himself over the eternal question of right or wrong.This person is none other than Ivory Christian, an aggressive Christian who is always seeking the answers to life's questions.In this novel, Ivory is shown to be aggressive, loving, and dedication to everything he does.
