||Sir Guy of Gisburne, played by Robert Addie
Sir Guy is the lackey of the Sheriff of Nottingham. He is disloyal and serves begrudgingly under him. The two men, Sir Guy and the Sheriff, are almost two peas in a pod. They are very similar to one another in their ambition and complete selfishness. They are willing to climb over anyone to get what they want.
Sir Guy, as his mother had explained, is not to blame for this attitude; his father treated him very poorly during his upbringing. Whatever the reasoning behind it, Sir Guy is a man of swords and horses: a knight, a soldier. Unlike the Sheriff, he is not eloquent nor tactful. He is a man of action (the ultimate excuse, the Sheriff has said, for not thinking).
Whether it's his poor fate or poor judgement, the fact remains that he never gets the better of Robin Hood. Time and again, Robin out-thinks, out-plans, and out-acts Sir Guy, leaving him bitter and insanely jealous.
