Wuthering Heights Characters Analysis

Mr. Green 
Mr. Green is Edgar’s very corrupt lawyer. He was supposed to make changes to Edgar’s will to stop Heathcliff from gaining access to Thrushcross Grange. Instead, Mr. Green decides to help Heathcliff out and make it so that he could own the Grange.
Zillah
Zillah is Heathcliff’s servant. She was a servant to him at Wuthering Heights after Catherine had passed away. Zillah was always kind to Lockwood. But she does not assist or like Cathy. This is because Cathy was very proud. Heathcliff’s instructions also went against her will.
Dr. Kenneth
