Great Regulars: He claims that he was an "excellent knave

of hearts and took many a trick." He could get as many girls as he wanted.

Already, this character is showing his fatuousness. The behavior associated with his description of his physical person and choice of dress suggests he was little more than a male prostitute. But it is likely he prostituted his integrity for vanity rather than money.
