He was a policeman, and he used to look in on Tanya every night, even if he got home “at like 3am”. (Nightvisiting) He sang Rock-a-bye Baby to her. (The Stone House)

Later on in his life, Tanya looked in on Vivian and Jasper to make sure they hadn’t gone in the night. (The Coach with the Dragon Tattoo) According to Tanya, he used to say that people don’t set out to be monsters; “They start by getting a little taste for it and then they like it, so they taste some more. And then before you know it…” (Co-Owner of a Lonely Heart)
