Rebecca

Rebecca

by Daphne du Maurier

Colonel Julyan

Character Analysis

Colonel Julyan, the magistrate at Kerrith, isn't what we'd call an impartial investigator.
It seems like that he knows that Maxim killed Rebecca, but participates in the cover up. This guys would rather preserve the illusion that Maxim is a fine gentleman, than go up against him and disturb the social pecking order.
