Mr. Blunt is the British vice consul in Xian. Philippa and Finlay Macreeby went to his office to control him with the golden tablet to help them translate and speak Chinese phrases to command the Dong Xi. He was a small man with curly gray hair.
He was quite rude to both Finlay and Philippa, believing that he didn't have time for children.
- Being the British vice consul in China, Mr. Blunt was fluent in six dialects of Chinese- Mandarin, Wu, Cantonese, Min, Xiang and Hakka.
