Aha! Another Wodehouse fan (or, at least, reader).

What other "Bertie Wooster Universe" (or we may need to widen it to the
whole "P. G. Wodehouse Universe") to "New Sun Universe" character mappings
can we do?

Well, if Father Inre is Jeeves then I suppose Severian is Bertie Wooster.
They share a tendency to miss things that seem obvious to the reader, at

Agia = Roberta "Bobby" Wickham

Baldanders = D'Arcy "Stilton" Cheesewright

Abia = Aunt Agatha

Jonas = Gussie Fink-Nottle?

This is turning out to be not only one of my more pointless exercises, but
quite difficult as well. Wolfe and Wodehouse certainly differ widely (one
might say wildly) in style, subject matter and intent in their writing.
