Willie Stark  Governor of one of the southern states (most critics assume that it is Louisiana); the  son of a dirt farmer in the rural northern part of the state, he challenges the entrenched interests  from the southern part of the state and wins, making many enemies in the process of changing the  benefits provided by the state government. Lucy Stark  Wife of Willie Stark; a former school teacher who married Willie while he was County  Treasurer in Mason County, she becomes estranged from him while he is governor, although she  does pose for photographs with him occasionally. Tom Stark  The governor's son; he is a potential All-American football player until an injury crushes  his spinal cord; he also provokes one of the most severe threats to his father's position because of  his sexual activities.
