The Point of a Pin

The incident involving the pin of his prefect's badge and his left earlobe seems tentatively to suggest that the younger Wyndam-Pryce may prove a problem.

In all other respects, he is an exemplary student. Always has highly polished shoes. Exhibits occult knowledge beyond the required curriculum. Tipped as a future head of school on the basis of his simultaneous translations from Latin and Fyarl.

Nonetheless, this earlobe affair… minor blood-poisoning aside, it recalls to mind that loose cannon who worked his way back into our fold, the one who is almost certainly destined for the next posting to a Hellmouth.
