Boots is described as having a round face with mutton chops.
In the books Edit
Boots is left behind when the rest of the hive has fled, to deliver a message to Alexia: Check the cat.
Boots is mentioned to have been in conflict with Biffy over decorating the new Maccon home when they moved next door to Lord Akeldama. He then escorts a visitor, Felicity Loontwill, around the home. Later, Boots and another drone named Tizzy, helped Lady Maccon by arriving in Lord Akeldama's dirigible at the most convenient time.
- Boots is said to have relations in Steeple Bumpshod.
- It is implied that Boots may take too much pleasure from helping dress Lady Maccon. (Heartless, Chapter Six) Lord Akeldama says that Boots has "no particular preference" when it comes to companionship.
- "A top hat, with attached head, peeked into the room and was soon followed by a dashing figure sporting a forest-green velvet frock coat and leather spats. For a moment, Alexia almost pulled back her swing, thinking the intruder was Biffy...But then the young man glanced toward her hiding spot - a round face sporting muttonchops and a surprised expression." (Blameless, Chapter Two)
- "Good gracious me,' he exclaimed, backing away warily and rubbing his arm. 'I say there, do hold your horses! Pretty poor showing, walloping a gent with that accessory of yours without even a by-your-leave." (Blameless, Chapter Two)
- "Boots, Lady Maccon. Emmet Wilberforce Bootbottle-Fipps, but everyone calls me Boots." (Blameless, Chapter Two)
- "He winked conspiratorially and then seemed to think better of the flirtation when the parasol was raised against him once more." (Blameless, Chapter Two)
- "Although, after having to mediate a head-to-head between Boots and Biffy over the efficaciousness of velvet decorative pillows, she suspected generals had it easier." (Heartless, Chapter Two)
- "There was none forthcoming, only Boots's shocked statement. 'It is a lady, what!' 'They do happen, Boots, as much as you would prefer to deny it." (Heartless, Chapter Two)
- "The door opened and Boots and Biffy entered. Both were looking dapper and well put together as behooved a current and former drone of Lord Akeldama's, although Biffy had a certain aura that Boots lacked." (Heartless, Chapter Two)
- "Although, it seemed to leave him unexpectedly breathless. Lady Maccon was beginning to learn that Boots was ever willing to undertake anything she asked of him." (Heartless, Chapter Four)
- "Are you telling me, my lord, that Boots enjoys the company of both men and women?" (Heartless, Chapter Six)
- "The ever-considerate Boots rushed over with a pouf on which to rest her throbbing ankle." (Heartless, Chapter Eight)
- "Remarkably, her use of his proper name seemed to cause the young dandy some embarrassment, for he blushed and backed hurriedly out of the room, leaving them alone save for a plethora of gold-tasseled throw pillows and the fat calico cat purring placidly in a corner." (Heartless, Chapter Eight)
