Neverbend, Lactimel

A spinster sister of Fidus Neverbend, whose theories of social equality did not prevent her from toadying to Mrs. Val ScottĀ 

"with distressing habitual humility ...She was altogether short in stature, and very short below the knee. She had fair hair and a fair skin, small bones and copious soft flesh. She had a trick of sighing gently in the evolutions of the waltz, which young men attributed to her softness of heart, and old ladies to her shortness of breath" - Three Clerks
