Biography: 

George Wilkins is first presented as a fool and Lucas Beauchamp’s rival in the moon-shine trade. George does, however, show a cannier side: as Lucas’s son-in-law, George is more tightly embedded in the Beauchamp family than he first appears, he makes use of his wife’s dowry as he pleases, and when Lucas teases George about the treatment the latter will receive in prison, George replies, “Yes sir . . . Especially wid you there to help me worry hit out” (66).
