Rev. Rupert "Beefy" Bingham, Oxford schoolmate of Freddy Threepwood, Tuppy Glossop, and Bertie Wooster, was a Blood and Trial Eights man. Nephew and heir of a shipping magnate. Colossal frame, ingenuous face about the color of the inside of a salmon. East End parson running a boys' club at the East End in Jeeves and the Song of Songs, where he organizes clean, bright entertainments at the Oddfellows' Hall in Bermondsey East. Wants to marry Gertrude Alcester in Company for Gertrude, where Lord Emsworth makes him vicar of Much Matchingham to spite Sir Gregory Parsloe-Parsloe. Engaged to Gertrude in Go-Getter, where he wins back her love by breaking up a dogfight between his dog Bottles and Lady Alcester's Airedale.
