Sir Percy Blakeney, the hero of Baroness Emmuska Orczy's The Scarlet Pimpernel.
''We seek him here, we seek him there,
Those Frenchies seek him everywhere.
Is he in heaven?
—Is he in hell?
That demmed, elusive Pimpernel.''
He was a rich clothes-horse (dandy), that got the girl in the end (his own wife), and saved many people from Madame Guillotine.
