Friederike

Friederike Weischeit Isaac's step-sister (she was adopted by Isaac's parents when she was a child) is a sweet-hearted and gentle girl, altruist and self-sacrificing. Knowing that there are no biological ties between them, she loves Isaac in secret, even though she hopes that he will marry Katharine. Moritz develops a possessive affection for her and forces her to date with him; but these sentimental strains and her pains at work undermine her frail health. She dies of tuberculosis, surrounded by everybody's love.
