He is described as round and bespectacled.
Mr. Phinkerlington has the manners of a clerk and the demeanor of a constipated mole. He is very good at his job.
He has a minor aristocratic connection that he's embarrassed about, which may be Mrs. Loontwill and her family, due to her maiden name being the same as his.
He is Percival Phinkerlington's son, which makes him Leticia's nephew and Alexia's cousin, although she doesn't know this. He is also Aggie's father.
