"'Neighbour Pliable' from Pilgrim's Progress"

 The Pilgrim's Progress (1678, full title The Pilgrim's Progress from This World to That Which Is to Come) is a book by John Bunyan, written in the form of a Christian allegory. Neighbour Pliable is a character who accompanies the protagonist of the story on his journey. The characters in Pilgrim's Progress have allegorical names relating to Christian virtue and vice, so Pliable means just that - easily influenced or persuaded.
