William "Billy" Budd  Of obscure origin and limited education, Billy is a good-hearted and simple  peacemaker who is nicknamed "Baby," as well as "the Handsome Sailor." He serves dutifully as  foretopman on the  Bellipotent  and rejects an offer to join a mutiny. Claggart hates Billy because of  his innocence and beauty. John Claggart, Master-at-Arms  The dark, demon-haunted weapons officer and ship's policeman in  his mid-thirties who, out of jealousy and malice, causes Billy's execution. Claggart comes from a  shady background and is possibly foreign by birth. He is not well known to the captain because he  joined the crew when it last left home port to replace the former master-of-arms, who was disabled.  Because of his inner corruption, Claggart brings about his own death and is buried at sea.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
