George Banks is a young man from London’s underclass who while bright has drifted into the criminal life. He works chiefly as a snakesman, wriggling and prying his way into locked places to let in tougher gang members. George is very resourceful and has a gift of the gab, but nobody could mistake him for anything but a grown up street urchin.
CONNECTION WITH PROFESSOR SMITH:
George once burgled Professor Smith and the Professor kindly let him off provided he would better himself.
CONNECTION WITH OTHER INVESTIGATORS:
George helped Professor Worth when he thought the professor was being cheated by a fellow academic. They had been introduced by Smith. Worth, like Smith, would like to see George better himself. Some scurrilous rumors suggest George is Professor Worth’s illegitimate son. George knows nothing of his parents, since he was abandoned as a baby.
