In Act 1 Scene 2 of Hamlet, Polonius is revealed to be a petty, vain, and selfish father as he does not even trust his own son, Laertes. He sends his servant, Reynaldo, to Paris to keep an eye on Laertes and instructs him to spread bad rumors about Laertes, but in a way that it does not seem too bad and does not involve any sexual activity. Polonius uses manipulation and indirections to try to find out what Laertes is doing while in Paris.
