There isn't enough room to answer all your questions in one post. I'll take your first one but t you need to submit others separately.

Mr. Fairle is seen as rather effeminate. He is described: “His feet were effeminately small, and were clad in buff-coloured silk stockings, and little womanish bronze-leather slippers.…he had a frail, languidly-fretful, over-refined look-something singularly and unpleasantly delicate in its association with a man, and, at the same time, something which could by no possibility have looked natural and appropriate if it had been transferred to the personal appearance of a woman.”
