A brave little tin soldier who was in love with a paper ballerina. He was different from all the other soldiers because he didn't have one leg, but that didn't stop him from intending to meet the ballerina. Although he went through a lot of problems and adventures, he managed to see her one last time.
Their love was eternal as her gilded rose and his tin united forever in the fire. He is faithful to the chosen service to serve the child as a toy and on that basis, he believes that he shares the same destiny with the ballerina, which is why their destiny is intertwined and tied.
The one-legged tin soldier is the embodiment of simplicity, while his love, a ballerina, is not so simple: in fact, she has the other leg, so her standing on one leg is her choice, the pose, while the tin soldier is forced to stand on one leg.
A paper dancer (ballerina) who was seen by a soldier as equal to herself because she also stood on one leg. She hoped to see her soldier again after he disappeared one day because she had no one to watch all night.
The personification of evil, but again he has only the outward signs of magical evil power, and his threats are essentially empty. However, the reader, common sense, understands that neither the desire of adults to ventilate the room (the first fall of soldiers - on the street due to drafts due to the opening of the window), nor the cruel boy's prank (second and last fall of soldiers - into the furnace), were tricks of the little devil, but an unfortunate fate.
