Willy Loman  An aging salesman. He suffers from depression and anxiety as a result of his  dissipating career, his estranged relationship with his oldest son, Biff, and his guilt over an  extramarital affair. As the play progresses, Willy loses the ability to distinguish between the present  and his memories of the past. Linda Loman  Willy Loman's wife. She is Willy's champion and takes it upon herself to reconcile her  family. She will protect Willy at all costs, even if she must perpetuate his fantasies and deny his  suicidal behavior. Biff Loman  The Lomans' older son. Biff has been estranged from Willy for over 15 years, during  which time he has not been able to hold a steady job. Biff is the only member of the family who  knows about Willy's affair, and he resents his father bitterly. Happy Loman
