Other Characters

The first member of the group to get ahold of The Utopia Experiments, he is killed soon afterward.

Portrayed by: Ian McDiarmid

An elderly, senile Romani man.

For tropes related to his younger self, see here.

  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: He seems like a confused elderly man, and only rambles in Romani. But Donaldson discovers that he cracked Deels syndrome, and how it works...only the surfaces of the basement. As he's actually Phillip Carvel, he may not only would know about it, he could've been responsible for it.
  • Cloudcuckoolander
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: Played with when he was younger. Not so much now, since he's genuinely mentally unstable.
  • Walking Spoiler: He's really Philip Carvel.

How well does it match the trope?
