Horror on the Orient Express
Captain Sir Roderick Barrington, DSO, Bt.
Captain in Her Majesty's Army
Sir Roderick is the younger son of a baronet (a hereditary titled rank that is not part of the peerage, thus a commoner) who went into the army. He has seen distinguished service in India and Afghanistan, where he also saw some evidence of occult strangeness. Captain Barrington is now on leave, awaiting his next posting. He has always enjoyed travel and exotic places. A gentleman, he is extremely chivalrous but also not given to taking a slight without returning it in force. He also hates caddish behavior and resolutely opposes villainy.
