The Chaplain is the religiousleader of the army but extremely hypocritical and cowardly. He personifies Brechtian view of religion during war time that religion is no use during war. He switches allegiance freely and is not ashamed of such acts. During peacetime, the chaplain assumes he will be able to return to his church, despite having abandoned his faith and those who needed him during difficult times. He lacks real faith.
