Inside Buckingham Palace - Buckingham Palace group - Netflix
Big Nose – A guard at the palace. He carries a gun, and at one point
guards the door to the infirmary where Maxie and Blue are held captive.
He seems doubtful that David will manage to take over London and would
rather be a farmer than a guard. After Achilleus and Lewis free Maxie
and Blue, Big Nose begs to be taken with them when they leave, as he has
had enough of David's crap and knows he will be punished if he stays.
They oblige, and he is among those to escape the palace, though he is
apparently not sure he made the right choice. He is described as
fair-haired and slightly shorter than Spotty. David King – The leader of
the Buckingham Palace group. He is an arrogant, psychopathic and
megalomaniacal teenager who attempts to restore the British monarchy
under his personal control. He is pale skinned, has a lot of freckles,
and looks to be 17 years old. He is extravagant and vain, and dresses
excessively in a black suit. Jester claims he is sixteen. Franny –
David's head farmer at the palace. She works hard. She wears glasses and
overalls, and seems to have feelings for David. Jester – David's
right-hand man in the Buckingham Palace group. He walks to meet the
Waitrose and Morrisons groups, and persuades them to undertake the trek
to the Palace, where he says life is. He wears a patchwork coat to
memorialize all those he has lost. Despite this apparent honour, he is
insensitive, snobby, and condescending. He is also shown to be a coward
several times throughout the book, fleeing danger whenever possible and
trying to make alliances with both Achilleus and Just John before their
fight so he can be in the winner's graces. He has stiff, matted hair and
looks sixteen. Pod – David's head of security at the palace. Described
as blond and good looking. He played rugby before the infection. Rose –
The head doctor at the palace. She is loyal to David, but seems to feel
guilty about imprisoning Maxie and Blue. According to Jester, she was
originally from his group and came to the palace with him and others.
Spotty – A guard at the palace. He carries a gun and at one point guards
the door to the infirmary where Maxie and Blue are being held captive.
He seems to believe his position is great and will be rewarded after
David takes over London, which he firmly believes will happen. He is
slightly taller than Big Nose, and has short, curly brown hair and an
infestation of acne.
