Clabber Hornsby is the "albino from Jarreau." He is "milk white" and has "nappy white hair." Clabber is a minor character and does not figure much in the narrative. He is mntioned by Mathu in conjuction with other characters. For example, Mathu says, "I been changed by y’all. Rooster, Clabber, Dirty Red, Coot—you changed this hardhearted old man”
