The Merchant  A shrewd and intelligent man who knows how to strike a good bargain and is a  member of the rich rising middle class. The Squire  A vain, lusty young man and a candidate for knighthood. He can sing, write poetry, and  ride a horse very well, and considers himself a lady's man. The Franklin  A large and wealthy landowner who enjoys fine living and good companionship. The Shipman  A huge, uncouth man who can steer a ship but flounders on his horse. The Prioress (Madame Eglantine)  A very genteel lady who is coy and delicate. She has precise  manners, eats as an aristocrat would, and wears a gold brooch with "Love conquers all" inscribed in  Latin. The Physician  A doctor who can speak knowingly of medicines, drugs, and humours, and who  knows astrology as well. He is fond of gold and makes a lot of money during the plague season. The Pardoner
