Gregory Thrift is a rich thirty-five year old, estate owner who is tall, broad and strong with a great big bushy beard and a ‘brandy face’. He walks with a limp, and because of this he has not been able to go to war himself. He is a short tempered, cruel man who belittles others.

Jane Daughter of Gregory and Sally

Jane Thrift is the nine year old daughter of the family. She is a typical ‘daddy’s girl’ who is arrogant and spoilt from the wealth of the family and in most cases doesn’t hold her tongue. The arrival of Billy means that she has not been getting the same amount of affection from her father and for this reason she resents Billy.
