Biography: 

This icon represents the various people whom Virgil and Fonzo see in the train station and on the streets of Memphis when they arrive there in Chapter 21. None are given any individuality, but they are identified as "a stream of people" who "jostle" the newcomers in the depot, where they are also beset by cabmen and a redcap, and, in the Hotel Gayoso and another, unnamed hotel, a porter, bellboys, and "people sitting among the potted plants" in hotel lobbies (188-90). Like the redcap, the hotel porter and bellboys are undoubtedly black (and the "monkey niggers" whom Virgil refers to, 190).
