Flora is Casby's daughter, and was at one time Arthur's love. Flora's family did not approve of Arthur as a suitor for their daughter, so she married an older man named Finching, who died. When Arthur returns from China, Flora sets her sights on her old boyfriend, but her nonstop chatter and lack of personality soon deter him. Flora's role in the novel is to provide background and comic relief, especially when she is accompanied by her late husband's aunt, who is clearly insane.
