Clarence is a second son who has been an oldest son his entire life. Edward, Jr., the older brother who died as a toddler, has been a significant part of his life since he learned of his existence as a young boy, and he has alternated between a fondness for him and a sense of competition.
Clarence attended only the best public schools and university. He is, in addition to his current title, the heir to Madeley, by virtue of his uncle, its current Viscount, producing only daughters. Family pressure to marry one of those daughters only strengthened his resolve to avoid them. However, hope began to reemerge for the unfortunate young ladies when season after season went by with Clarence still, surprisingly, single.
It was with great relief that Clarence spotted a handsome young lady who could answer him quip for quip, and question for answer, and who consented to marry him before the season was out. He is quite happy with his choice.
Clarence is slightly below average height and trim. His hair is light brown, his eyes darker. His expression tend to the sardonic smile. He dresses conservatively, not out of lack of funds to be more stylish but through lack of interest in changing a perfectly good wardrobe every year. He much prefers to have a basic standard wardrobe that may never be in the height of fashion, but will also never be entirely out of fashion.
Clarence is quieter than his wife, but enjoys watching her enthusiasm. He is neither shy nor unfriendly, but he is also not the sort to immediately bring someone into his inner circle--and the inner circle are the only people who see anything more than the witty, somewhat careless fellow with an interest in politics.
He is loyal--when someone is in that inner circle, they're in for good, barring something completely unforgiveable. His generosity extends itself to people like his mother, his sister Margaret, who has decided to embrace old-maidenhood and is planning to set herself up in his household at least for now, and his friend Arthur, who is going through a difficult time and spends a large proportion of his days in the Haworth's living room or out hunting with Clarence.
Despite that, he is not a soft touch. If confronted by a do-gooder about child labor, he'd likely be quite surprised: "Why, how else are the poor tykes supposed to make a living?"
While Clarence is devoted to Georgiana, he did develop a tendency to flirt over the course of his time as a single man, and appreciates female beauty, though he knows better than to praise another woman's looks in the presence of his wife, whom he finds more beautiful than any other, of course. Lastly, his witticisms may be clever, but they are occasionally hurtful. He is a tease, and has been known to insult people who he thinks 'can take it'.
