V For Vendetta

“We are told to remember the idea, not the man, because a man can fail. He can be caught, he can be killed and forgotten, but 400 years later, an idea can still change the world. I’ve witnessed first hand the power of ideas, I’ve seen people kill in the name of them, and die defending them… but you cannot kiss an idea, cannot touch it, or hold it… ideas do not bleed, they do not feel pain, they do not love… And it is not an idea that I miss, it is a man… A man that made me remember the Fifth of November.”

V For Vendetta:
Gordon Deitrich

Gordon Deitrich is a former television producer from before the Reclamation. After Norsefire took power in England, Deitrich was contracted to host a weekly, government-approved variety show called Deitrich’s Half-Hour. In public, Deitrich portrayed himself as a playboy; in fact, he is a homosexual, which would get him executed if publicly known. 

Voila! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity is a vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished. However, this valorous visitation of a by-gone vexation stands vivified and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin vanguarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition. The only verdict is vengeance, a vendetta held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity as such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and virtuous.
