St John Wooten is an Ancelstierren motorcycle owner and cricket enthusiast. His motorcycle is commandeered by Nicholas Sayre near Bain train station in The Creature in the Case. Wooten comments that he had seen Nicholas play cricket, though he mistakenly identifies him as fast bowler; in fact Nicholas is a spin bowler.
Wooten appears to be a cheerful man with a generally positive outlook on life. He is perfectly happy to lend Nicholas his motorcycle.
