    Cool schoolchum

    In the following sentence:

    He had been bought off the streets at a bargain, originally to be the Lord's whipping boy and schoolchum

    1)My first problem is schoolchum. I hadn't found this word anywhere.

    2) Is the first sentence saying that he was bought in the street through any opportunistic agreement?

    Thank You

    1) It means schoolfriend.
    2) It means that he had been bought at a cheap price, frm the streets.
