Overview… a kindly old man of indeterminate origins. Ted has recently moved into a boarding house with the young Bobby Garfield. Bobby immediately takes to the older man, who begins to act as a sort of father figure to Bobby. However, as Bobby spends more time with Ted, it becomes clear that there’s more to him than meets the eye. Ted is on the run from “low-men in yellow coats,” and asks Bobby to keep an eye out for lost pet posters and chalk drawings of stars and moons – the calling cards of the “low-men.”
Personality… wise, kind, and mysterious, Ted is a gentle mentor who seems to take a genuine interest in the happiness of everyone around him. He is a keen student of human nature and has the uncanny ability to always tell what people are thinking and feeling.
