Sebastian Beach, formerly an under-footman, then a footman, is the Butler at Blandings Castle in Something Fresh, Leave It to Psmith, Lord Emsworth Acts for the Best, Pig-Hoo-o-o-o-ey!, Company for Gertrude, Summer Lightning, Go-Getter, Heavy Weather, The Crime Wave at Blandings, Uncle Fred in the Springtime, Full Moon, Pigs Have Wings, Service With a Smile, Galahad at Blandings, Sticky Wicket at Blandings, A Pelican at Blandings, Sunset at Blandings; a slightly hypochondriac, portly man of sixteen stone with large spectacles and heavy eyebrows, his waistcoat swells like the sails of a racing yacht. Forty years before Galahad at Blandings he came in second in a choirboys' bicycle race. Invests all his actions with something of the impressiveness of a high priest conducting an intricate service at some romantic altar. Has buttled at Blandings 18 or 19 years. An occasional reader of historical fiction, prefers Rex Stout and Agatha Christie. Has a niece named Maudie Stubbs (q.v.), his brother's daughter.
