Biography: 

His full name, as readers learn when he signs the i.o.u.'s he leaves his nephew instead of a golden treasure, is Hubert Fitz-Hubert Beauchamp. The son of the man who built it, he owns the "Warwick" plantation that is half-a-day’s ride from the McCaslin plantation. Until her marriage, his sister, Sophonsiba, lived with him. After the Civil War he takes a black mistress for a while, and then lives with an aged black servant "in one single room" in the decaying mansion (290) until it burns down. His vainglorious attempt to leave a legacy for his nephew, Ike McCaslin, is a dismal failure, but they speak to the changing fortunes of a plantation family beyond the McCaslin line that is the novel’s primary focus.
