ProsperoProspero is the magician who rules the island upon which the noblemen's ship is wrecked. He was once the Duke of Milan, but was betrayed and overthrown by his wicked brother, Antonio, who is now the Duke. He has a fifteen- year-old daughter, Miranda, whom he loves very much. He commands many spirits and supernatural servants, including the wild and graceful Ariel and the earthy and resentful Caliban. Prospero loves his books almost as much as he loves his daughter, although in the end he gives them up in favor of real human connections. *Learn more about Prospero*
Prospero is represented by Samantha Stevens of Bewitched: Samantha walks a thin line between a life of reality and a life of magic. She cannot deny her mystical powers, just as Prospero cannot deny his. However, like Prospero, she tries to give up her magic in favor of the ones she loves.
