Biography: 

Jody Varner runs the store founded by his father Will in Frenchmen’s Bend. He gives us the first indication that the man Lena has heard about at the planing mill in Jefferson is not Lucas Burch but Byron Bunch. Jody also silently declines to sympathize with the unmarried and pregnant Lena, perhaps anticipating his later obsession (in The Hamlet, 1940) with his sensual sister, Eula.
