Compare And Contrast : Sir Percy Vs. Chauvelin From The Scarlet Pimper

Many objects and people these days have the ability to be compared and

contrasted. For example, you could compare and contrast a dog and a cat. A dog

disguise allowed him to not be recognized immediately by Percy, but still he
