“Change is coming, friends. Best be on the right side of it.”
Virtue: Justice. Tumbledown Royce believes wholeheartedly that what he’s doing is right — for himself, for the Lost as a whole, and for the world.
Vice: Pride. Tumbledown Royce has gone so far down the rabbit hole of extremism that he’s no longer capable of recognizing any viewpoint but his own as the correct one.
Background: An eccentric recluse, Tumbledown Royce has spent over a decade preparing for his masterstroke against Faerie. His durance gifted him with an uncanny ability to break things, to see the precise stress points in an object, a person, or even an idea, and how best to put pressure on them to his own ends. His life before he was taken imbued him with a healthy disdain for those in a position of power. He wants nothing more than to topple the system from the top down, rebuilding society in a mode he finds more suitable.
Description: Short, fat, and crooked, with long, skillful fingers and sharp, sharp teeth. His eyes gleam with a fanatic’s light, but he manages to make his arguments seem calm and rational — at least until someone calls him on the cost of his plan. He dresses in the shabby attire of a lower-class worker, carefully mended and re-mended over the decades.
