Kid Brady is a thick-set, square-shouldered young man from Wyoming. Brady was once a cowboy and later became a light-weight boxer. He finds the conditions in the East far from ideal; at one point he feels the only friend he has in the world is his old mother. A boost from Psmith and Billy Windsor in Psmith, Journalist, including printing Brady's memoirs in their magazine Cosy Moments, earns him a run of fights leading up to a title challenge against the champ, Jimmy Garvin. He smokes a black cigar when not in training, and is Pugsy Maloney's idol. Jimmy Pitt once went three rounds against him.
