Privileged upbringing- "all his own toys", "silver trays to take meals on" Mrs Lyons makes him generous and happy to share. Very strict "clean, neat and tidy" raised to be polite and well-behaved, Private education leads him to a uni and a good career, confident "Will you be my best friend?", polite "Hello, Mrs Johnstone. How are you?", impressionable-"You say smashing things".
