Character Sketch of Halle Suggs in Beloved

Halle Suggs is Sethe’s husband and the father of her children. On the day they planned to escape Sweet Home, he doesn’t turn up as decided beforehand. Halle was nowhere to be seen when he was supposed to be with Sethe. It is during the latter part of the novel, that we get to know that Halle was hiding in the loft of the barn, where Sethe was violated and saw everything. Halle had gone insane when Paul D saw him for the last time; sitting next to a butter churn, smearing butter all over his face. Though absent from the novel, he comes across as a loving and considerate son; sacrificing a lot for his mother. Denver has never met her father but thinks he’s an angel
