Kaz Character Analysis

Kaz is Roley’s colleague. Like Roley, she is affected by Samson’s death. He reminisces with her about the time that he defied Declan in the dolphin show, suggesting that they are allies in the face of Declan’s authoritarianism. When Roley leaves Oceanworld, he thinks distractedly that he’ll write a card to Kaz. Nevertheless, he does not say goodbye, and it seems possible that he’ll never see her again.
