Voss, Michel

The landlord of the Golden Lion of Granpere.

"...a tall, stout, active, and very handsome man, about " years of age.... His short, dark, curly hair-that was always kept clipped round his head-was be gininning to show a tinge of gray, but the huge moustache on his upper lip was still of a thorough brown, as was also the small morsel of beard which he wore upon his chin. He had bright sharp brown eyes, a nose slightly beaked, and a large mouth. He was on the whole a man of good temper, just withal, and one who loved those who belonged to him; but he chose to be master in his own house, and was apt to think that his superior years enabled him to know what younger people wanted better than they would know themselves" - The Golden Lion of Granpere
