Um, sorry. No, I didn't recently acquire another personality to go along with the existing eight. This series was conceived as a kind of homage to the Lord of the Rings Trilogy that the visionary Peter Jackson brought to the silver screen. Trouble was that the pipe's working title of "Gandalfo" didn't bring a smile of approval from the Tolkien estate (might have brought a grin to their barrister's face, but I am speculating at this point). It was/is renamed "Qandale", and remains one of Savinelli's coolest Churchwardens. Now where was I? Ah yes... "Be on your guard. There are older and fouler things than Orcs in the deep places of the world." (like uber-aggressive copyright/trademark attorneys).
