The manifestation of temptation in the village of Viscos; The stranger is the one who made a deal with Miss Prym and the people of Viscos in order to determine whether we are good or evil in essence. Old Berta is the widowed woman who was thought of as a witch by most people in Viscos. She represents the Good side thus, a foil with the character of Carlos in the sense that she is the one who counters or balances the doubt that the stranger incites on Chantal. Old Berta is not entirely dynamic in character because there are no significant changed that can be observed from her aside from the occasional shifts in ideas like death. There was a part in the first part of the novel where she wanted to die and be with her husband but somewhere in the middle, when she was chosen to be the sacrifice, she decided that she wanted to live a bit longer. Miss Prym is a dynamic character in the sense that at the end of the story, she ended up in a different situation; she was wealthy and able to explore the world just like what she always dreamt of.
