Amir agha: The main protagonist and narrator of the novel. Born in Khabul, he begins as a well off boy in tribal Afghanistan and after the Soviet invasion migrates to America. Amir is a wealthy teenage boy that has been privileged his entire life. He easily gets what he desires. The only thing he does not have, is a superb relationship with his father. Throughout the story, Amir's actions are mainly caused by his need of attention from his father and the jealousy he feels toward his friend Hassan. Amir is Hassan's half-brother; however, Amir does not learn this until later in life (the middle of the book.)
