I reckon Bertie would have Latin too. All part of a good public school education, what?

(Also, best opportunity ever to use this icon!)

I refuse to believe that Bertie is 'Neutral good'...
'Lackadaisy Good' is probably the correct term, but I doubt that exists in 5e.
Neither is 'Hungover Good' (Tries to act good as long as it isn't stopped by the effect of a hangover. )

Butlers are NOT 'Lawful Good', especially not the good ones...
They just act like it most of the time. you know, bending rules slightly, stuff like that. Then will do random acts of pickpocket, automobile theft, or other in order to help their master.

There's LG, NG, and CG. Bertie may be a bit all over the map, but he still cares about things like dressing properly, observing social decorum, etc. Therefore he's not chaotic enough for CG and not lawful enough for LG. Hence, neutral good.

I could see a case for Jeeves being Lawful Neutral, except that his machinations always bend towards rewarding the virtuous and punishing the wicked (as secondary objectives to getting Bertie out of the soup, admittedly, but still with consistency and vigor). Given his very rigid views on appropriate social behavior and the interplay between classes, Jeeves is definitely lawful. It's just that the "laws" he follows are based on the Old Feudal Spirit, rather than the relative Johnny-come-lately laws against things like assault or theft.
