Characterization-“Let’s put it this way,” Dedé adds. “I followed my husband. I didn’t get involved” (Chapter 9). Dede was an weak minded character. She was also easily manipulated. These two descriptions describes Dede the best because her husband was so controlling over her that she got used to it and did everything he told her. He actually helped her out in a good way because she didn't get involved in the revolution.
