Boy from John Knowles's A Separate Peace. A recluse and continually scorned by the other boys at Devon for avoiding the war (World War II) Leper is like the punching bag and sad sack. Eventually, he succumbs to insanity after having to endure the harshness of training for war, never actually making it out to battle.
Brinker Hadley was one of Leper Lepellier's main antagonists, rejecting him because he feels he is too much of a "naturalist."
