In The Deadly Device, Frank comments on how George is good at codes.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

In her Ransom of the Seven Ships appearance, George has short, straight brown hair, dark eyes, and is light skinned. She seems to have a much taller, more athletic frame than Bess. In Alibi in Ashes and The Shattered Medallion, she has wavier hair and softer features.
