(Crow was killed July 13 2002,by order of the former prince)
As told by Euchrid A Yossarian, Sabbat Bishop of Orlando,
to Joey "Skank" Callahan, homeless resident of Orlando.
"I would thrust my fingers into your eyes to best illustrate, but
you'd probably resist, as you always do.
"Mr. Crow flits about his business with the attention to detail
we normally attribute to the devil, were the position not already
taken. Never holding the thorny, thorny crown for himself,
he gladly plants it with random determination upon
the itching, waiting scalp of whichever Malkavian desires
to be called popinjay of the night.
"But not Jonathan Crow.
I hear he's done a new production:
"He's not one of mine, alas, but the invitation is always
open...after all, he helped me get a particularly rusty jar
open once. Because heat expands, you see.
But if his tiniest finger points upwards in prominence,
so must my vision and cause, by default.
We're only two sides of an infinite-sided coin, you know.
Mr. Crow-ley would say something about the
Tree of Life, but it only has so many branches on which
the birds may roost. And we need a place where
any bird may roost, no matter what breed...and
lay their eggs. And when Crow eggs hatch, very
strange birds are going to emerge.
"Now quit squirming. This is a learning experience."
