The cold father Dreverhaven is a good example of Agressive Style; being cruel and seems to enjoy putting people out of their houses when they can't pay the rent anymore.

The police detain Jacob, a young lawyer, following a death. He tells his story in flashbacks. His parents are stubborn: his mother, whose name he takes, is mute with him and rejects offers of marriage from his father, Dreverhaven, a stern and imposing bailiff. Dreverhaven, for his part, will not acknowledge Jacob in public, save for legal ploys to keep Jacob impoverished. Jacob, first a debt-ridden office boy, rises through intelligence, hard work, and single-mindedness to become a lawyer. His success is tempered by his mother's silence, his misjudgment of a young woman's feelings, and his father's cold, fierce aggression. Is his father merely building Jacob's character?
