There is a very strong sense of Kutuzov being a father figure when he re-enters the novel. The way he looks at everyone, his body-type, the way he genuinely hugs Andrei upon hearing of the old Prince’s death, and in the way he really doesn’t give a fuck about anything silly. He respects propriety, does what’s expected of him, but he’s not going to put up with bull-shit like the invoices for chopped wood.
