<THE MAIN CHARACTERS IN THE GREEK SHADOW THEATRE>
 
 
Ο Μορφονιός
MORFONIOS: (Omorfonios="Pretty boy"). His real name is Zacharias, he has big head and nose too, that's why he speaks
through it. After every word he says "Whit" and Karagiozis explains to the audience that this is his fullstop! Morfonios was introduced
by Mollas.
 
Μπαρμπα - Γιώργος
BARBA-GIORGOS: He is Karagiozis' uncle born in Roumeli. He
represents the original Greek man of the mountains whose characterremained incorrupt. He is strong, honest and pure. When Roulias, the shadow player, introduced Barba-Giorgos the audience welcomed his figure because he was beating Velighekas, the scourge of the Greeks.
 
Ο Σταύρακας
STAVRAKAS:The figure was introduced by Giannis Moros from Piraeus. Dressed a little outlandishly, he has quite a dashing appearance but is always in trouble and gets beaten black and blue. His name is Stavrakis Jimmies, he comes from Syros Island but he is a real Piraeus lad. He represents the "guy" who is pride of himself but he is not so brave.
 
Ο Πασάς
THE PASHA: He represents the Turkish authority and the power.
Dressed as a rich commander, he is serious, severe and imposing.
   
Ο Βεληγκέκας
VELIGHEKAS: He has the role of the bodyguard in the seraglio and executes the pasha's commands. He is stupid, uncivilized and he speaks a little Greek using Turkish and Albanian words. His duty is to maintain the public order.
 
ALEXANDER THE GREAT: A traditional figure created by
Mimaros. As King of Macedonia he is brave, handsome, noble and gentleman. He's been considered as the symbol of Hellenism.
 
KOLLITIRIA: The three sons of Karagiozis, Kollitiris, Kopritis and
Mirikogos. Kolllitiris, Mimaro's creation, appears more often on the screen, he has exactly his father's character and he is very charming and amusing.
