The Blond Men Character Analysis

The Blond Men are a pair of men in “fraternity jackets” who drive up to the lake in a Trans Am just as the narrator, Digby, and Jeff are about to attack The Fox. Though the boys are hidden by the time the Blond Men arrive, they can hear one of the men as he screams into the night, threatening (in a Midwestern accent) to “kill” the attackers. The Blond Men help the Bad Character (once he regains consciousness) to destroy the narrator’s mother’s Bel Air, and then all three return to their respective cars and drive away.
