Biography: 

Judge Lemuel Stevens is the patriarch of the family that includes his son, Gavin Stevens; daughter, Maggie; her husband, Charlie Mallison; and their son, Chick.

When Gavin sues Manfred De Spain to disrupt the De Spain-Eula Varner Snopes affair, Judge Stevens says to his son, "'So you dont want him not to be mayor . . . Then what is it you do want? for him not to be alive? Is that it?'" (104).
