Trivia: The banker who turns down Jacob's first request for a loan is named Mr. Bingley, an obvious homage to one of the main characters in Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. J. K. Rowling has stated numerous times in interviews that Austen is her favorite author, and this is not the first time she has alluded to her works with a character name; Argus Filch's cat, Mrs. Norris, from the Harry Potter books and movies shares her name with the busybody character from Mansfield Park.
