George Penhallow is the twenty-five year-old nephew of former Consul Josiah Wayland. According to Tessa Gray, George Penhallow is a "friendly-looking" man.

His uncle had been suggesting to the Council that George be considered as his replacement, over Charlotte Branwell, when his term as Consul was over.[1] The same year, George attended the Council meeting that was attacked by Axel Mortmain's perfected clockwork army of automatons. It is unknown if George survived the bloodshed.
