In Education | Asked by VinitaDBst

Algernon Montcrieff--a charming, idle, though intelligent dandy.  He is morally agnostic and chronically selfish, living solely for the amusing things in life.

Cecily Cardew--an incorrigible ingenue, obsessed with the idea of wickedness, but incapable of realizing it.  She lives half in a fantasy world much like that of Algernon's.  She is apparently decorative with a hidden depth of mind which makes her a perfect match for him.
