Biography: 

Caspey is only mentioned in the story, when he is identified as "Elnora's husband" (727), although in Flags in the Dust, he is Elnora's brother. In that novel he returns from in France and World War I with a lot of anger against the place he is supposed to occupy in the region's Jim Crow system, though after an altercation with Old Bayard Sartoris, he resumes his role as a loyal servant. In the story he is serving a sentence in the penitentiary for robbery or burglary, but no further details of his life are provided.
