Early 50s, resembles a Demoiselle Crane on the verge of a nervous breakdown. High-strung owner and manager of the Rosebloom Auction house and Marian’s employer. Gave her a lot more work after the trauma around the Ambassador Hotel Auction… although this seems to be his way of expressing confidence, not peevishness. Maybe. He does seem more concerned about the business’ reputation than the well-being of his employees, but that’s just his way of coping. Maybe.
