Ausable is a secret agent. But his appearance is not appropriate to his profession. He does not look smart and intelligent. He is very fat. But he is a very active person. He proves it throughout the story. He never takes decision in a hurry. He works with a cool mind. He is good at talking. He understands Fowler’s internal views about himself. He does not lose his temper when he finds Max in his room with pistol. He sits into an armchair and cooks up a quick story about balcony. It is his style of conversation that he easily makes Max believe about balcony. Thus, we find that Ausable is fearless, clever and fit for the job of a secret agent.
