#9. Pap Finn from 'The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn'
Pap Finn appears briefly in the beginning of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, and then we hear very little on the subject of Pap until the end when Jim reveals he died. Seeing as Pap was an abusive alcoholic and generally the personification of the sentiment “ugh,” his death is more of a relief than a tragedy. And it's satisfying, sure, but not in a "YES, AT LAST" way so much as an “Oh cool, Pap’s dead. I feel like the story can end now” way.
