An Even Better Name

Wow. Malachi Throne. That's just so utterly improbable. It sounds like the name of an Old Testament-quoting kung-fu supervillain played by Troy McClure.

Also, note the frequency of monkey-character voiceovers and monkey-related roles and themes (especially as Narrator of LANCELOT LINK) in Mr. Throne's cv. And his recurring cameo in ARK II, which the Confidence Man regards, for better or for ill, as one of his foundational childhood Ur-texts.
