From meeting a woman in the morning time, he will be taking her out in the same evening. He is portrayed as having a charming character, although at times he is cheeky. 'He always came up smiling, with impudence'. He has a pleasant look on his face but on some occasions he can be disrespectful.

The women in Tickets Please lived in a small town and did not know what was happening in other parts of the country.
