This quote introduces the reader to a Percy we haven't met. Seeing Lord Percy through the eyes of the Prince of Wales makes us wonder who this man really is. We don't picture a lucky, carefree man with a great sense of humor and quick wit. We see the same man Marguerite sees, the man who hides behind sarcasm.
