Beyond the Mountains of Madness
Graduate Assistant to Charles Myers
A born deal-maker, Giles immediately sets about discovering the interests and specialties of everyone in the expedition. It is he who discovers Albemarle’s small cache of chocolate on board the Gabrielle, and is aware of Charlie Porter’s working-class history. If the investigators need something, their best bet is to go to Every Giles, who is the ace dog-robber with the expedition. Although his work always gets done on time, one rarely sees Giles working. He is usually talking to someone who is both working and negotiating with Giles. As an undergraduate, he was also clever as an actor, and is still fond of declaiming long passages from famous plays and poems.
