Carswell is a fanatical devotee of the Trans-Beaumonde Lev Line and wishes to give his guests the service of a lifetime – provided they measure up to his impossibly high standards. Unfortunately, they seldom do.
Carswell is overweight with a dark complexion. The barest hint of a sheen of sweat coats his skin, as though he just stepped out from a sauna to conduct business. He wears an immaculate white suit with a blood-red cummerbund and matching Fez.
He’s a relentless taskmaster who thinks he’s surrounded by idiots. Though he himself hails from humble beginnings, Carswell looks down on the middle and lower classes with a vengeance. He affects an overwrought upper-crust accent that is part Logan 5 and part Dr. Frank-N-Furter. Nobody is willing to risk his wrath by telling him how ridiculous he sounds.
