Judge Jaffrey Pyncheon

The cousin of Hepzibah and Clifford, he is a wealthy and distinguished member of society. He is a sinister man with a resolute sense of purpose. Judge Pyncheon resembles in many ways Colonel Pyncheon, for both are known for their imposing characters and attempts to grasp at power and fortune. It was Judge Pyncheon who framed Clifford for his uncle's murder and who now believes that Clifford holds the secret to the location of a long-lost deed to vast eastern territories that could make him unbelievably wealthy.
