Henry is described as being tall, like all the male staff at Woolsey Castle. He’s a brunette with a square jaw, broad shoulders, and muscled thighs.
In the Books Edit
Henry sends Imogene Hale to bring tea to Drone Lefoux after she’s returned to the hive. He becomes angry with Imogene when Madame Lefoux requests her repeated company, accusing Imogene of stealing his duties. Out of spite, he takes to pinching her whenever he thinks he can get away with it. He continues to torment Imogene whenever he can, escalating physical altercations. After Imogene is moved out to the potting shed from parlourmaid, she begins to suspect Henry of stealing Madame Lefoux's research, but no one takes her suspicions seriously. When Imogene reports her suspicions to Madame Lefoux, she takes matters (and Henry's privates) into her own hands - rather roughly. Afterwards, he was dismissed from the hive.
- Henry is a favorite of the Lord Ambrose.
- “I did not imagine Henry had such a fondness for me or his duties with respect to my good self. I thought visiting the laboratory was more a hardship for him.” (Romancing the Inventor, Chapter Two)
- "Henry came around the table to press close – rubbing himself flush against her hip. 'What you need is a lesson in sausage-making. Then you’ll stop pining after a two-bit hack with nothing more upstairs than she has down below.” (Romancing the Inventor, Chapter Four)
- "Henry was generally well regarded by the maids. He was, after all, a first footman, and vampires always traded on looks. He had a square jaw and dark hair, broad shoulders and muscled thighs. Many a lass about the kitchen would be honored to walk out with him." (Romancing the Inventor, Chapter Four)
- "He leaned over, his mouth fetid as old fish, pressing against her in the guise of looking over her work. As if he understood any of it." (Romancing the Inventor, Chapter Six)
- "Henry is such a nice boy. Everyone likes him. I feel it more likely you’re using him than that he’s engaged in espionage. He came to us with excellent references and he’s been with us much longer than you.” (Romancing the Inventor, Chapter Six)
