So if it happens Ray got shooed away to spare him certain questions … gotta ask if there hasn’t been that kind of sheltering of him otherwise… like, you got a guy with a nice manipulable tragic flaw…a useful idjut, maybe… maintaining that for some might be kinda like changing your oil is for you. Is there a Zen to the art of Useful Idjut maintenance? How else do you get upkeep done on the character capable of saying: (from memory) “this is the way you fight these kinds of insurgencies.” Or maybe it’s he himself that wanted the ‘threat’ shooed… That’d make him less like a useful idjut whose oil you change and more like a self cleaning oven.
