You could use words that describe what Ichabod actually does for a living.
- Singing master
You could also use words that describe what he looks like. The text indicates that Ichabod Crane is most definitely not a handsome hunk of a man, so don't be overly flattering.
You could also use words to describe his personality. For this one too, don't pick words that are overly flattering. Ichabod is a pushover of a man. He's afraid of just about everything, despite his love of spooky stories. On top of that, he doesn't exactly have high moral standards. Here are some words that I would associate with his personality.
- Slothful (he does work a lot, but that's because he needs money. If he didn't need the money, Ichabod wouldn't do anything)
- He is a "yes" man
