  1. Key Characters
    1. Jane Bennet
      1. Shy, quiet, polite, reserved
        1. "The serenity of your sister's countenance and air was such as might have given the most acute observer a conviction that, however amiable her temper, her heart was not likely to be easily touched."
          1. Her look and manners were open, cheerful, and engaging as ever, but without any symptom of peculiar regard, and I remained convinced from the evening as ever, but without any symptom of peculiar regard, and I remained convinced from the evening's scrutiny, that though she received his attentions with pleasure, she did not invite them by any participation of sentiment.
            1. However, too reserved so that many people believed she did not encourage Bingley enough
          2. Mr Darcy
