Scott, Undecimus (“undy”)

The eleventh son of Lord Gaberlunzie, “…thrice elected and twice rejected” M P from the Tillietudlum district. A thorough rascal, who became a stockjobber and induced Alaric Tudor to invest his ward’s money in one of his schemes.

."...stalwart and comely, hirsute with copious red locks, not only over his head, but under his chin and round his mouth. He was well made, six feet high, neither fat nor thin, and he looked like a gentleman. He was careful in his dress, but not so as to betray the care that he took; he was imperturbable in temper, though restless in spirit; and the one strong passion of his life was the desire of a good income at the cost of the Public" - The Three Clerks.
