Rudyard Funn is a main character in Wooden Overcoats.


Rudyard is the proprietor of Funn Funerals, a failing family funeral home, and runs it along with his sister Antigone and their employee Georgie. At the beginning of the series a rival funeral home arrives on the small island of Piffling Vale and Rudyard starts an intense, somewhat one-sided rivalry with the new business and its owner.



Outside of shipping with Eric Chapman, Rudyard is not shipped much. This may be partially due to common portrayals of Rudyard as ace, aro or aroace.
