City of Delusion
The Man In White
“Whenever Richard Cory went down town,
We people on the pavement looked at him:
He was a gentleman from sole to crown,
Clean favored, and imperially slim.”
- from “Richard Cory” by Edwin Arlington Robinson
He is a specter of vanity and cold cunning; smiling, perfect teeth as spotlessly white as his regally adorned clothing. His hair is glistening electrum; his eyes a cold and emotionless grey. His countenance takes the feeling of a waking dream, a pale nightmarish duke stands before you.
Little is known about The Man In White. All of it is rumors and hearsay, and some of that is closer to folklore and urban legend. The only thing everyone in The City can agree upon is that it’s dangerous to even ask about him, let alone to meet him.
