William Brooks’s Five Questions

Sponsor: Probably the Lady Mirabel. They have a lot in common. Though she is more knife happy than he is.

Mentor: Not being the opium and whores type, William is typically standoffish and rarely at the club. However, he does consult with the less amoral members, such as the Night Hag, when he runs into a particularly perplexing problem.

Nemesis: They haven’t come into contact yet, but William and The Turk will fight a brutal Cold War throughout the century. He will not be happy when The Turk joins the club. William isn’t exactly thrilled by the disastrous Challenge of Captain Gryphon in the tail end of the century, either.


Love Interest: Between Lady Mirabel, the Irish actress Anne Brennan (stage name: Minerva Adams) who has been working with William on stage, and that reporter from the Morning Star asking around about his nighttime activities, Mr. Brooks has a paralyzingly confusing suite of love interestes. And that’s assuming Margaret doesn’t visit London.

Names: William was given a name by his birth parents, Tor’col Orn. He has been called “Spring-Heeled Jack” by people who have seen him jumping across London.
