Humphrey is as healthy, active, and bold as Miles is sickly, passive, and mild. While Humphrey is "proof against colds, coughs and accidents of all kinds," Miles has a "tendency to a delicate chest. With his clinging and affectionate ways, Miles is his father's favorite.
Lady Duncombe, on the other hand, had favored Humphrey, recognizing the loving nature beneath his rougher manner.
After his wife's death, Sir Everard had interpreted Humphrey's restlessness as lack of feeling, and, when he sees Humphrey playing, concludes his son "has not much heart. The greater part of the book describes Humphrey's adventures and their consequences.

However, when Aria says "There are many ways to cry", we know those flashes and that glimmer are all but gone.
