K “Smitty” Smith is a round character in the story, “Two Fisherman” written by Morley Callaghan. Smitty works as an executioner or “hangman” for a living. Smitty does not particularly enjoy this job, but does it because as Smitty says, “Someone’s got to do my job. There’s got to be a hangman” (Callaghan 2). However, Smitty has a very positive attitude with a talent of story telling; once Smitty begun to tell stories “They felt friendly again. The little man, who had an extraordinary gift for story, telling, … and moved around restlessly as if he wanted to get up in the boat and stride around for the sake of more expression” (Callaghan 2). Smitty’s biggest weakness is that he is very oblivious. Because of this, Mike Foster was able to get Smitty’s trust that he was his friend when really he was using him to make a great story to improve his track record.
