Adolf Verloc: The protagonist of the story, Mr. Verloc is a closet anarchist and spy - effectively a double agent. He keeps a shop which sells items that we never really get to identify - just "stuff" of dubious value. A metaphor for his function in life. Despite his status as an anarchist, he marries Winnie and takes in her simple-minded brother and her mother. Under pressure from Mr. Vladimir, he decides to "do something" which has disastrous results.
