I take it that the lack of colours represents his moral ambiguity, and the grey morality of the Revolutionaries.


Moral ambiguity is nice and all, but what about prettiness? Didn't they ever make him color his pictures in grade school?

Probably not. He'd just keep debating with the teachers which colors would look best without actually coloring anything.

Southwark's facial hair isn't very good looking. We need a better beard.

Revolutionaries are all the same—they spout slogans about freedom, but freedom to what? To be overrun by the forces of Hell? Vote for the Bishop!

I think the chances that Hell will attack us are much higher if someone invades them first.

I kinda want to vote on him just because he is the candidate no one will pick, and I think this is quite the point.

He might not be the best choice of mayor, but he surely will be the funniest. He is my favourite guest in the party, if only because he is sports when he looses arguments and he (almost, if you are successful) kills a man just by being annoying. It takes serious skills to kill people with debating hard.

Is it not the case that Hell has already invaded? A fortnight ago I interrupted a devilless attempting to trick a poor orphan into giving up his immortal soul! What will those Revolutionaries do about that?

How irritating that Failbetter would give us a candidate that actually seems like he'd be good at the job. Now I'm forced to decide between voting for someone that seems to be the best candidate for the job and someone whose campaign platform is essentially "Let's supplex Satan."

I don't think you understand what the devils will be able to do when we do invade, it will be more than just tricking people into selling them their souls im afraid.

Well, I guess this is the one im voting for, I don't think I know enough about sinning Jenny to really vote for her, and while I do hate Veils with all my heart, most vake hunters are fools, and they WILL die, and I also don't want a time machine that will bring us back to a war that we can't win.

Winnable or not, the war will come.

I bet the Contrarian would be real fun at the University. If he hasn't been kicked out already. But if that's the case he can just use those mayoral powers to continue infuriating the academics once again.

I'm surprised that some of you don't remember the Contrarian. He's one of my favorite characters!

The Contrarian also has a cameo in Sunless Sea. He goes shopping at the Roser's Market for longboxes and gets into an extended argument with you concerning your boxes quality, before happily paying the full price. He loves arguing for its own sake. I wouldn't be surprised if that's why he's running, to have lots and lots of arguments. Maybe this is a clever stratagem to hide his true motivations. Maybe this is just how he is. Maybe we'll find out.

Turns out all this time it was a act for his plan to bring Eaten back from the dead.

I will accept all actions, though I hold the right to refuse for my own reasons. However, if you explain WHY you send me a harmful action like Loitering or Dantes,And I feel the reason good, I will consider it more. http://fallenlondon.storynexus.com/Profile/Kylestien

    I myself will be casting a vote for this Chestertonian figure, if only because he is an homage to one of my all-time favorite authors. Plus, I think him the most level-headed of the bunch, and have a tendency to want to go against the "celebrity favorites." Finally, I just like to have the fellow about, as a debater myself.
