Alexei Fyodorovich Karamazov

Alyosha, Alyoshka, Alyoshenka, Alyoshechka, Alexeichik, Lyosha, Lyoshenka
Aleksey at age 20 is the youngest of the Karamazov brothers. The narrator identifies him as the hero of the novel in the opening chapter (as does the author in the preface). He is described as immensely likable.
At the outset of the events, Alyosha is a novice in the local Russian Orthodox monastery. His faith is in contrast to his brother Ivan's atheism. His Elder sends him into the world, where he becomes involved in the sordid details of his family. In a secondary plotline, Alyosha befriends a group of school boys, whose fate adds a hopeful message to the conclusion of an otherwise tragic novel. Alyosha usually acts as a messenger or witness to the actions of his brothers and others. He is very close to Dmitri.
