"the portrait's painted eyes held whoever's was looking into them from wherever the viewer sat...He was best remembered for the treason trial after the Great War and his defense of the sole survivor of the bloodbath below Victoria's statue in Company Bagh that has killed his three co-conspirators...his lawyer's chilling argument had whipped the mask off a ruling power whose law courts condemned men to death for following his own example.
