Unnamed Deputy Sheriff 8
Ever Present in Yoknapatawpha?: 

In "Tomorrow," Quick identifies this unnamed man as "the deputy or bailiff or whatever he was" (105). He accompanies the Thorpe brothers when they arrive in Frenchman's Bend with a court order for custody of their sister's child. (As is also the case with county sheriffs, there are many unnamed deputy sheriffs in the Yoknapatawpha fictions. It's possible that Faulkner is imagining at least some of these deputies as recurring, especially when the stories are set at more or less the same historical moment. However, there is no way to be sure of that, so it is more accurate to represent each of these deputies as a separate character.)
