Gibbie is a destitute, mute boy in Scotland, raised by an abusive and alcoholic father. At one point in childhood, he finds himself in murderous company - the "wee Sir Gibbie" is an appellation of affection given the character, by his compatriots, emphasizing the distinctiveness of his character, in particular in relation to his coarse surroundings.
