The Spanner. The one the good guys call when they need someone bad.


Crowley’s favorite look right now is “punk rocker, mid-midlife crisis”. He has neon blue and green streaks in his blonde hair, and is constantly chipping traffic-cone orange polish off his fingers. He smokes like a chimney, and favors a battered denim jacket with a missing sleeve, which is covered in patches and pins with part of a Union Jack sewed on the back.

You either love Crowley, or you hate him. Most people hate him…and even some of them grudgingly tolerate him because they’ve come to understand the role he plays. If the balance is tipped a little too favorably, he’s the one Janus sends to straighten it out.

Crowley recruited Nick in 1980, while running an indoor graffiti gallery in London, and harboring a young punk refugee from war-torn Ireland. Since then, he’s been gleefully pushing Nick’s buttons. … and everyone else’s. He’s been known to disappear from Aviario for long stretches on missions for Janus, but no one ever seems to mention what they are, or why. Most people just assume it’s better that they didn’t know what he’s up to … lest they decide they want to try to stop him.
