The fact that Marvel is the only character in ‘The Invisible Man’ who interacts with Griffin and gains something, is actually very true. Firstly, all the other characters who interacted with Griffin – Mr and Mrs Hall, Kemp, Bubtings, Cuss – each of them suffers in one way or the other because of their interaction with Griffins. Marvel is the only one to have not suffered but instead gained something out of it.
Griffin had forcibly taken up Marvel as an accomplice in his acts, considering he was a poor tramp who would be easy to manipulate. Out of desperateness and loneliness, Griffin enslaves Marvel and threatens him if he does not cooperate. After Griffin’s death, Marvel becomes the sole proprietor of all his wealth and also of all his experiments, which he had been noting in his diary.
So, in the end, Marvel manages to open an inn out of the money he had inherited from the Invisible Man. The notes and information come in handy too, for he now uses the Invisible Man’s tale to gain public sympathy and attention as well.
Eppie was the young daughter of Godfrey Cass and Molly Farren. She is beautiful, with golden tresses, also an analogy to the recent theft of gold from Silas Marner. After her mother’s death in a snowstorm, Eppie wandered into Marner’s cottage.
Eppie is mischievous, partly because Silas refuses to discipline her. With time, Eppie grows to love her father dearly, and ages into a young, beautiful, sweet-tempered woman. It is her love and devotion that compels Silas to restore interest and faith in the village of Raveloe and in community.
Soon, Eppie comes to know who her real father is, and of his intentions to separate her from the father she had believed in and loved all her life. In this moment, we see another side of Eppie – strong headed and stern. She later falls in love with Aaron, the son of Winthrops, at the end of the story, and the two get married eventually.
