So is only one person prying?
Is the prying to learn about someone's appearance? Their general manner?

Wow! Bingo!
I need to name these people. The person prying shall be Bill and the other person, the one whose appearance is relevant, shall be Tom. If that's all right.
Is this a religious person Bill are prying about? And Bill want to know about a physical characteristic of Tom's? Are the other people helping Bill? Is the issue whether Tom has something (hair, teeth, etc.)?
