The Long Road of Power
Ruup the Red(-Tape Reader)
An ‘admirer’ of Asmodeus and failed wizard, Ruup works magic with red-tape to confound and inhibit all who incur his ire. Long nights alone thumbing his ledgers have left him looking haggard and pale. Fear not! under this apparently ‘worn out’ stoop with his grey hair and thin boniness is an inner fire. Burning to find the affective clause, the balancing item and the arcane meaning and secret within each and every entry or sub-clause Ruup is always looking for “the angle” which leads to knowledge. For as the motto on his desk (plaque by management adornments inc) says" knowledge is power" and in the kingdom of the binder the one who gets the idea is king. If there is a rule to infuriate; Ruup knows it and how to apply it to its most infuriating effect. It is on record that he has driven at least three co workers insane and none has worked with or for him for more than a couple of days. Fortunately his belief in power is such that it gives him an obsequiousness to his masters which if he is left alone makes him a useful if annoying clerk.
