First Appearance: WB2014 Lord Crush - Part 1
He is very proud, stubborn, and more than a little stupid. He frequently had to be forcefully shouted down by his son Racket, who was the only one able to talk him down from his bad plans. He may be gullible as well, considering Lord Maglite, who had gone to war with him twice, was able to persuade him to betray his allies and join him in an attempt to conquer the Union.
He very much loved his son and depended on him for deeply for his intelligence when planning. However, Racket would loudly and forcefully disagree with his father whenever he had a bad idea. When Scrofula was swayed and thought of Maglite as a friend and considered betraying the Union, Racket would have been completely opposed. In fact, Dunkin McClown suspected that rather than dying in combat Scrofula may have Disbanded him to move unopposed.
Prince Axe Bodyspray
Scrofula doesn't appear to have thought much of his younger son, belittling him at a banquet. He even thought him dumb, being unable to carry out the war against the union, and so calling for Lord Crush. However, he did want to keep him as an heir rather than designate Crush, so he may have held some filial loyalty. After Axe beat him to a bloody pulp to make him change his mind, he was apparently cowed long after the initial beating into staying true to the Union.
The kings relationship with his fool was contentious and venomous. He tolerated the jester's abuse and suffered him to live because of Scripture. Bizarrely, the king carried out a facade of nonchalance and even played with the jester during banquets. Dunkin's insults and jeers apparently hit very close to home, to the point that when given a chance to disband him he took it with no small pleasure, ordering a feast afterwards.
In the wake of Rackets death or potential disbanding, Scrofula took heart in a letter of condolence written by Crush, rereading it many times. Combined with Racket's good opinion of Crush and his tactical prowess and his lack of faith in Axe's, Scrofula decided to try and convince Crush to turn to Squashcourt and help fight the Union. Despite initial refusal, hew as treated with deference and "jailed" in the library, Scrofula would try repeatedly to sway him with offers of leniency for him and his mother Queen Post to no avail. The royal esteem quickly ran out in the face of Crush's and Dunkin's "betrayal", to the point hew as sent to the worst prison cell.
