Ignorance is such an important character from which to learn because he is so much like a true pilgrim and yet completely lost, and because, in the story, he actually makes it (being self-deceived by a false gospel) to the Gate of the Celestial City (cf. Matt 7.21-23) before being awakened to his lost condition. It would do us well to examine ourselves against Ignorance before we too are awakened too late.
