The Avenger

Character Analysis

The Avenger is Pip's servant boy who he hires to seem like a more legit gentleman. The problem is, beyond putting toast on the table and yelling people's names when they walk through the door, the Avenger doesn't really have much to do, and Pip spends a lot of energy trying to come up with tasks.
