Introduction to the Rogues (2/?)

“No one just starts giggling and wearing black and signs up to become a villainous monster. How the hell do you think it happens? It happens to people. Just people. They make questionable choices, for what might be very good reasons. They make choice after choice, and none of them is slaughtering roomfuls of saints, or murdering hundreds of baby seals, or rubber-room irrational. But it adds up. And then one day they look around and realized that they’re so far over the line that they can’t remember where it was.”  

- Jim Butcher

On 25th March, 1989, Jeffrey Dahmer met two men outside a bar called La Cage, a white man by the name of Jeffrey Connor, and a 24 year old black man named Anthony Sears (pictured above). It was Sears who made the approach. His friend overheard him ask Dahmer if he had any coke, to which he replied that he had some rum as well. ‘No’,said Anthony, ‘I mean cocaine!’. After a while Jeff invited him to spend the night, Anthony eagerly agreed and Connor drove them both to the corner of 56th Street and Lincoln, in West Allis, on the way in the car Anthony unzipped Jeff’s trousers and started giving him a blow job, Dahmer said ‘it was a surprise. I didn’t think he was that anxious’, from there they walked to Catherine Dahmer’s (Jeff’s grandmother’s) house, where Jeff murdered him. His skull, scalp and genitals were discovered in Jeffrey’s apartment at the time of his arrest over two years later. Jeff said he strangled Anthony with his bare hands ‘because he was special’.

Surely magic should be magical? Surely magic is to dream? Where is the wonder of England’s past? Of magic’s golden age? There is no mention of the Raven King, except to insult him and strike him low, to purge him from what we do. Norrell calls this the magic of the modern age. I say it is commonplace, mundane. I say that there is much more to English magic than this. There is no mention of the discoveries I have made at my peril. No mention of the Raven King’s Roads - or why they have been hidden behind the mirrors of England. Norrell is too afraid to question why The Raven King would do such a thing, too afraid to explore where those roads might lead. Afraid it will take us to places we never intended to go.
