Augustus Fink-Nottle, fish-faced newt-keeper in Right Ho, Jeeves, The Code of the Woosters, The Mating Season, Stiff Upper Lip, Jeeves. Small and shrimplike, a teetotaler (but also a Drone), pre-eminent subnormal who wears horn-rimmed glasses. Engaged to Madeline Bassett in The Code of the Woosters. Chinless recluse who can't stand London, spends his time in a remote village in Lincolnshire; Nature's final word in cloth-headed guffins, he prefers company of newts, which he keeps in a glass tank. In Right Ho, Jeeves after drinking a large amount of Aunt Dahlia's whiskey in order to muster courage to propose to Madeline Bassett, he drinks a pitcherful of orange juice (his customary beverage) spiked with two tumblers of gin immediately prior to making a speech and distributing prizes at Market Snodsbury Grammar School. Still engaged to Madeline Bassett in The Mating Season, where he impersonates Bertie Wooster. Elopes with Emerald Stoker in Stiff Upper Lip, Jeeves.
