Hans is a postman from Seafront who takes his job seriously.
Hans was worried about Ursula, who lived in the lighthouse alone without trying to gain understanding from anyone. He knew that her husband had already left this world, but could not bring himself to tell her that, and continued to deliver letters to her that he wrote under the pretense of her husband, never knowing whether he was doing the right thing or not. This fake and hypocritical action was a tradition passed on from his father’s generation, and Hans simply could not give up on it out of his own will. He possesses conflicting feelings of relief and regret if the old woman passes away without knowing the truth.
- His name comes from the author of “The Little Mermaid”, Hans Christian Andersen.
