Portrayed as a central figure embodying the societal norms and expectations of the time. Torvald is Nora Helmer's husband, and he initially appears as a loving and doting spouse, but as the story progresses, his true nature is revealed to be more controlling and condescending. Torvald is preoccupied with maintaining his reputation and social status, often at the expense of his wife's autonomy and happiness. Torvald's character is characterized by his adherence to conventional gender roles and his patronizing attitude towards Nora, whom he treats more as a child than an equal partner. He prioritizes appearances and societal expectations over genuine emotional connection and mutual respect in his marriage. Throughout the play, Torvald's actions and attitudes contribute to the tension and conflict that ultimately lead to the climax of the story.

His transformation from a seemingly caring husband to a figure of moral hypocrisy and self-interest underscores the themes of deception, liberation, and the quest for personal identity that are central to the narrative of "Nora: A Doll's House
