The "fat staff-major" in Flags in the Dust whom Jeb Stuart and Carolina Bayard capture when they raid General Pope's headquarters (13). He takes his bad fortune stoically, but it is his assertion that "there is no place" for a gentleman in the war that provokes Sartoris into the act of bravado that results in his death (17).
