An illustration of the letter 'A' in a speech bubbles

In Chapter 7 he is referred to as "Jack" by his sister Beryl.  His real name was Rodger Baskerville, before he changed his name to Vandelour and then Stapleton.  His "sister", of course, was actually his wife, whose name was Beryl Garcia Baskerville.
