    • A Gospel Analysis “The truth will set you free.” John 8:32 2
    • 3
    • Character Studies 3
    • Neo / Thomas Anderson 4
    • Neo - neo- as a prefix means "new": denoting he is the latest 'One' who can control the Matrix's future. Neo is also an anagram of one, reinforcing his Messianic status 5
    • Thomas Anderson - Thomas can be considered a reference to the Gospel of Thomas. Anderson means son of Andrew, and since Andrew is from the Greek for "man", this surname could be referring to one of Jesus' titles, "the Son of Man". 6
    • Trinity 7
    • Trinity is Morpheus' right-hand. Morpheus freed her years ago and she has sinceTrinity: become his most trusted ally. The Oracle told her she would fall in love with the One. 8
    • Trinity references the reflection of the Holy Trinity with Morpheus as God the Father, Neo as the Messiah, and Trinity as the Holy Spirit. 9
    • Morpheus 10
    • Captain of the hovercraft Nebuchadnezzar, Morpheus believes in The Oracle's Morpheus: prophecy, and he believes he has finally found the One. He acts as Neo's mentor. 11
    • Morpheus was the Ancient Greek god of dreams - appropriate since he first contacts Neo through a series of dream-like events and his aim is to "awaken" people from the Morpheus dream-world of the Matrix. 12
    • Agent Smith 13
    • The main adversary to Morpheus' plan. A Agent Smith: sentient program in the Matrix, Smith is able to do almost everything Neo can. Agents are supremely powerful, and no one has every survived a standoff with an Agent before Neo. 14
    • Agent Smith - "Smith" is the most common surname in many English-speaking countries, reinforcing his generic, conformist appearance as an Agent (all of the Agents have nondescript names, and Morpheus comments "you all look the same to me"). 15
    • In an early scene in The Matrix Reloaded, Smith drives a car with the license plate number "IS 5416"; in the King James Bible Isaiah 54:16 reads "Behold, I have created the smith that blows the coals in the fire, and that brings forth an instrument for his work; and I have created the waster to destroy." 16
    • Cypher 17
    • A member of Morpheus' crew, Cypher decides the life of a resistance fighter isn't all it's cracked up to be and engineers a deal to be reinserted back into the Matrix, at the expense of Zion. 18
    • A Cipher is a a cryptographic system used for coding and decoding messages - Cypher's allegiances are coded and concealed. A cypher is also the mathematical symbol 0 denoting the absence of quantity - zero (to Neo's One). It is possible also a reduced form of Lucifer, a name for the Devil. 19
    • The Oracle 20
    • An unusual inhabitant of the Matrix, The Oracle is able to see the future. Morpheus takes members of his crew to her, most importantly Neo. The Oracle is also responsible for the original prophecy concerning the existence of the One. 21
    • Switch 22
    • A member of Morpheus' crew, Switch is curiously the only one who appears in white clothes when they enter the Matrix. 23
    • Tank 24
    • Tank: A tank is a type of heavy vehicle. (Cf. the name of his brother, Dozer). Also a subtle reference to the "tanks" the humans are kept in at the power plant towers. A member of Morpheus' crew, Tank was born in Zion - he never was a slave to the Matrix. His brother Dozer is also on the Nebuchadnezzar. Tank thwarts Cypher's plan, but not before Cypher wipes out most of the crew. 25
    • Dozer 26
    • Dozer - A bulldozer is another type of heavy vehicle. "Dozer", meaning "sleeper" could also be seen as a connection to the "sleeping" state of those jacked into the Matrix. A member of Morpheus' crew, and Tank's brother, Dozer was born in Zion - he never was a slave to the Matrix. 27
    • Apoc 28
    • A member of Morpheus' crew, he is the first to die when Cypher sets his plan in motion. "Apoc" is possibly a shortened form of "Apocalypse", referring the Biblical verses in the Book of Revelations. The shooting screenplay for "The Matrix" states that he wrote "The Four Horsemen" virus. 29
    • Mouse 30
    • Mouse: • A member of Morpheus' crew, Mouse is the 'digital pimp' responsible for programming the woman in red - he offers private visits with her as well. 31
    • Agents Jones & Brown 32
    • Two other sentient programs, they have all the dangerous capabilities of Agents Jones & Brown: Agent Smith, but are not as individualistic or driven as he is. 33
    • Links to Christianity 34

    • 35
    • Humans are engaged in a war with machines, and the war is going badly. The majority of the fleet of hovercrafts has been wiped out, and the military situation looks all but hopeless. Neo is seen by some as ‘The One’, a saviour whose arrival was prophesied, and who is supposedly destined to end the war 35
    • 35
    • • The Jewish people were waiting for the Messiah, to lead them into a golden age. Their lands were in Roman occupation. They awaited a great Messiah to free them and make them a glorious nation like they had under King David. There were various prophecies about this Messiah 35
