Biography: 

One of the major characters in the Yoknapatawpha fictions, in Flags in the Dust he is merely referred to in one paragraph. But this one passage does outline Flem's rise from his poor white origins in Frenchman's Bend to his current position as vice-president of the bank founded and run by Old Bayard Sartoris, as well as his practice of bringing other Snopeses in to Jefferson in what the narrative implies is a kind of assault on the town.
