Biography: 

Caspey is only mentioned in the story, when he is identified as "Elnora's husband" (727), although In Flags in the Dust, where he appears in the narrative, 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. Neither the novel nor the story provide details about the robbbery or burglary for which he has been sentenced to the penitentiary.
