Your costume suggestion
Smartly dressed in shirt, bow-tie, polished shoes and cuff links,
you carry a white towel over your arm in case of emergency. Slicked back
hair and a well-groomed moustache finish your impeccable appearance.
As a young boy, you dreamed of travelling to Africa to help primates. Unfortunately this day-dreaming meant your school grades were pretty awful and you ended up taking a job as a shop assistant in a busy department store. Christmas time was always horrendous but one day Albi LeGrinch came in and was so impressed with your service he offered you a job as his butler. Ironically, he was much less demanding than department store customers and he also looked a bit like a monkey, so you’ve been happy with the arrangement ever since.
INTRODUCE YOURSELF AT THE START OF THE GAME BY READING THIS
I am the butler, Hugh Diddit. I have served here for many years for a stipend and I reside in the servants quarters - or “broom cupboard” as it’s colloquially known. I’ve seen the master in plenty of strange positions before, but to see him hanging at the top of the tree when I walked into the foyer this morning… well, I had to look twice just to make sure he was dead.
