Elizabeth Proctor: John Proctor's wife disapproves of her husband's adulterous affair (go figure). She throws her out and is eventually tried and convicted for witchcraft.
Reverend Parris: The town minister and uncle of Abigail Williams is more concerned with his status and career than finding out the truth.
Rebecca Nurse: Her acts of charity are known far and wide. That doesn't stop her from being accused of witchcraft and being hanged. It's Rebecca Nurse's, Martha Corey's, and John Proctor's arrest that makes Reverend Hale change his attitude toward the witch trials.
Judge Danforth: The presiding judge over the trials considers himself beyond reproach. Why he listens to delirious girls caught dancing in the forest remains a mystery.
Thomas Putnam: Putnam holds a grudge against Francis Nurse and is the accuser of Rebecca.
Ann Putnam: Ann has given birth to eight children, only one of which survived. She is convinced that her babies died from non-natural means.
Ruth Putnam: Ruth becomes ill after dancing in the forest.
Betty Parris: She becomes ill along with Ruth and accuses Tituba of witchcraft.
Mary Warren: The Proctor's servant who is easily influenced by Abigail. The witch trials give her a sense of importance. She tells the truth about Abigail, recants what she says when the girls turn on her, and accuses John Proctor of witchcraft.
