Aloysius is the village madman in Moneague, St. Ann, tolerated by his neighbors but otherwise shunned because of his tendency to [[TheMentallyDisturbed hold conversations]] with literally ''everything:'' [[HearingVoices rocks, trees, bushes, animals, etc.]] He lives in the bushland, where he often seeks shelter under the limbs of a friendly flame-heart tree, and scavenges for wild fruit to feed himself. Because he's a lunatic, he's shunned by the local women, and as a result hasn't had any sex in two years. He also claims to have a thousand names, which he'll spout off if you [[SchmuckBait ask him his name.]]
