Mrs. Gummidge  The widow of Mr. Peggotty's partner. She constantly complains about her  hardships, but when Em'ly runs away, she changes into a helpful, inspiring confidante of Mr.  Peggotty. Charles Mell  A schoolmaster at the Salem House boarding school. A gentle friend and teacher of  David. Mr. Creakle  The sadistic headmaster of the Salem House School. He is a fiery-faced man who  enjoys flogging the boys with a cane. He later becomes a prison magistrate. Mr. Tungay  The assistant and cruel companion of Mr. Creakle. He has a wooden leg and repeats  everything that Creakle says. James Steerforth
