Englemore, also known as Plum, preferred to live in Italy with his brother Lysander until he married Violante, who he was secretly in love with, and they had two children.
When he was younger and living at home he used to frequently win Valerius’ allowance from him playing cards.
After the birth of Lysander and Violante’s second child Plum decided that he could no longer be around them and decided to escort Portia to India where she was to check up on Jane. While there Nicholas Brisbane asked for his help and Plum began to do odd jobs for Brisbane such as disguise himself as a roadside leper.
Once they left Darjeeling, Plum decided that he liked enquiry agent work, and would work with Brisbane more often.
