This is a kind young man who is wealthy, handsome, and kind. He has a devil-may-care jokester quality that makes women fall in love with him, but he doesn't seem arrogant. Not wanting to get tied down by matrimony, this character travels a lot. On one visit home, he begins to see his friend Penelope in a new way.
She is quiet, but he notices how funny she is. As they spend time together, he realizes he doesn't want her to leave. This character doesn't want people to think of him as an empty-headed charmer, and he loves to write. With Penelope's prompting, he lets others read his work, and he becomes a published book writer.
