Julien

Character Analysis

Real Name: Lucien Carr

Jack's friend back in New York. He doesn't make any appearances in the novel, though Jack sends him a letter at one point ("addressed to Coaly Rustnut from Runty Onenut"). It's important to note that Jack's fascination with Billie begins with her resemblance to Julien.
