He is the Napoleon of crime.
He is the organizer of half that is evil and of nearly all that is undetected in this great city. He is the person behind a number of incidents in the city. He is a royal genius, a philosopher, an abstract thinker. He has a brain of the first order. He sits motionless, like a spider in the centre of its web, but that web has a thousand radiations, and he knows well every quiver of each of them. He does little himself. He only plans and watches.
But his agents are numerous and splendidly organized. Is there a crime to be done, the word is passed to him, the matter is organized and carried out in whatever way. The agent may be caught but the central power which uses the agent is never caught — never so much as suspected…
He is is the target of revenge. He is a humanist on the dark side, who's hopelessly in love with cruelty, savagery, and all the worst aspects of human nature and has no qualms about murdering people. He is a born evangelist and possesses both uncommon charisma and a true gift for narrative.
