Sir Percy Blakeney, baronet
and knight, is the main character of Baroness Orczy's famous novel.

but also the wealthiest. Best friend to the Prince of Wales, Percy
is often the talk of London society for his comical bantering
and amazing clothes. However, unknown to nearly everyone, Percy
is also the elusive Scarlet Pimpernel, a hero who rescues French
Aristocrats from death in Revolutionary France. With a band of
19 young men to aid him, he uses his histrionic skill to trick
the agents of the French Republic time and time again!
