I would say use Gerald, Eric and Mrs Birling.
GERALD:
He's not moral - if anything, he's immoral and he refuses to accept and change it. Gerald is immoral because he only treats Eva well for his benefit and pleasure - he disposes of her when he no longer needs her. He makes this worse because instead of accepting his wrong, he says that it was inevitable as he was like her prince. Also you could say that he is immoral because he criticizes Alderman Joe for harassing Eva, even though Gerald does worse to her. With context you could say that the upper class often got away with being immoral because since they were the upper class, they dominated rules and laws - if people in power do corrupted actions then they can get away with it. Shows how the upper class were exempt of rules and laws as they often twisted laws to their benefit.

ERIC:
Eric is similar to Gerald - both of them use their power, not just as upper class citizens but also their power as a male in a patriarchal society. The only difference with Eric is that he is moral unlike Gerald as he sees his mistake and though he can't change the past, he can still change his actions for the future. We see this when he says ' I didn't.. remember - that's the hellish thing' - we learn that Eric doesn't remember his actions and instead of using it as an excuse to say that he didn't do anything, he says that its hellish - he shows remorse for his actions and acknowledges the damage caused.

Sos if its really unorganised - I'll do Mrs B later - Hope it helped though!
