There are no historical events without characters do their action. Therefore, the contemporary Arabic novel tackled the historical characters through narrating history events. The forms of these characters are multiple according to the appointed historical events, so there are characters represented challenge and confrontation against the power of injustice and subjection, others represented the weak ruler, the tyrant, or the honest one. However, in Qidissu Hadiyab, these characters appear according to their arrival in the novel text.
