Biffin, Major

A fellow traveler of George Bertram and Arthur Wilkinson from Suez to Southampton. He was in love with Mrs. Cox, who preferred flirting with George Bertram.

"The major was a handsome man, with well brushed hair, well-trimmed whiskers, a forehead rather low, but very symmetrical, a well-shaped nose, and a small, pursy mouth. The worst of his face was that you could by no means remember it." - The Bertrams
