FROM WIKIPEDIA... JUS' THE TROOTH, MY DEARS..

"Fagin /ˈfeɪ&#6 09;ɪn/ is a fictional character who appears as an antagonist of the Charles Dickens novel Oliver Twist. In the preface to the novel he is described as a "receiver of stolen goods," but within the actual story he is more frequently referred to as the "merry old gentleman" or simply the "Jew."

Born in London, Fagin is described as "grotesque" to look at. He is the leader of a group of children, the Artful Dodger and Charley Bates among them, whom he teaches to make their livings by pickpocketing and other criminal activities, in exchange for a roof over their heads. A distinguishing trait is his constant—and thoroughly insincere—use of the phrase "my dear" when addressing others. At the time of the novel, he is said by another character, Monks, to have already made criminals out of "scores" of children who grow up to live—or die—committing the same crimes as adults. Bill Sikes, one of the novel's major villains, is hinted to be one of Fagin's old pupils, and the prostitute Nancy, Sikes's lover, clearly was."

"Although portrayed somewhat humorously, Fagin is nonetheless a self-confessed miser who, despite the wealth he has acquired over the years from the work of others, does very little to improve the squalid lives of the children he takes in – even allowing them to smoke pipes and drink gin "with the air of middle-aged men." In the second chapter of his appearance, it is shown (when he is talking to himself) that he cares less about those children who are eventually hanged for their crimes than about the fact that they do not "peach" (inform) on him and the other children. Still darker sides to the character's nature are shown when he beats the Artful Dodger for not bringing Oliver back, making Charley cry for mercy; in his attempted beating of Oliver for trying to escape after the thieves have kidnapped him; and in his own involvement with various plots and schemes throughout the story. He also indirectly but intentionally causes the death of Nancy by falsely informing the ill-tempered Sikes that she had betrayed him and Fagin, when in reality she had shielded Sikes, loving him despite his violent personality. This results in Sikes beating her to death. Near the end of the book, Fagin is captured and sentenced to be hanged, in a chapter that portrays him as pitiful in his anguish, waiting for the moment he will be led to the scaffold which is being prepared outside."
