If they lose it, they will be destitute. At an inn, they encounter the theatrical manager Vincent Crummles, who hires Nicholas still going under the name of Johnson on sight. Nicholas Nickleby, an year-old gentleman's son, is left to take care of his mother and his beautiful sister Kate after his father's death. Dickens's feelings about her were dark and complex: she tried to overrule John Dickens when he withdrew his son from the blacking warehouse in which the year-old Charles languished, and he never forgave her for that. They do a lot of charity work, employ Nicholas, and help restore his hope in humanity.

Ralph finds employment for Kate working for a fashionable milliner, Madame Mantalini. When Ralph learns about what Nicholas did at Dotheboys, he disowns Nicholas and orders Catherine and Kate not to help him. She and Nicholas love each other. Walter Bray: Madeline's father, formerly a handsome gentleman.

Meanwhile, Wackford Squeers moves to London. Brooker: An old beggar. A formidable but loving presence in the company, she is a great diva, but Dickens leaves the question of her actual ability up to the reader. She is the first friend the Nicklebys make in London, and one of the truest.
