Tibby is just sixteen when the novel begins, and is therefore barely consequential. As he grows older, he becomes more of a presence. He attends Oxford, where he isolates himself in his studies. He sometimes finds it difficult to be looked after by two older sisters, but with his coming of age also sees that he must also look after them.
