Constable, Port St. Mary

Primary: Spades 9 (Driven)
Secondary: Hearts 2 (Laconic)

Constable Dawkins just wants to do his job. All this trouble with the King and Mrs. Simpson has nothing to do with him. Crime in Port St. Mary and the criminals doing those crimes are his purview.

He's disturbed by the invasion of the BUF and, while forced to work with them by the simple fact that they've got guns and he doesn't, has not changed the fact that he doesn't trust them and places the majority of them in the same box as a common street thug. But they represent "authority" at this point, and the current authority that is in control of the village.

When push comes to shove, however, his loyalty lies completely with Port St. Mary and the Isle of Man over these fascists from the mainland. Shockingly, he has broken with his normal hard stance against crime when it comes to resistance against the BUF. Several times now, he's covered for villagers' activities against the occupiers, which has shaken his world view.

A door has opened, beyond cops and robbers, that he's hesitant to step through. He may have no choice in the matter, as events over the next couple of months may conspire to push him through.

Currently, he patrols the village with a squad of BUF legionaires, apparently armed only with a police whistle. He noticed from the beginning that the squad are rather lax with their weapons and, just yesterday, to his shame, he "acquired" a pistol and ammunition, which he has hidden on his person. If push comes to shove (or actually fascist against villager), he is prepared to defend his home.
