Biography: 

Bilbo and his brother Vardaman are identical twins, "identical as two clothing store dummies" (159) or "two clothes pins on a line" (160). "About thirty, a head taller than their father," their faces are "surly quick-tempered and calm" (160), though they act together with energy in the search for their murdered brother's body. Like his brother, Bilbo is named after a noted Mississippi governor, but together they spend their nights hunting and "their days sleeping flat on the naked planks" of the front porch at home (162).
