This is the second part of the story. Read the first part here: [link]
So, we haven't mentioned a certain cat yet...
CHESHIRE is a cat of a different stripe altogether. At first he seems a pure contrarian, delighting in taking the opposite stance of whomever he is talking to just for the sheer joy of annoying people. Alice wasn't very quick to learn this and fell for it every time. By this story she's got a better grasp on Cheshire but is still no closer to knowing what his real motives are.
He tells stories that has other meanings or sometimes are the truth is disguise, but no matter what he says it does no more than cover his real motives... Motives that only he knows and he's not telling.
In this tale he tells a story about a Sprite that cause the origin of evil in man. Is this purely a story or is there truth in the tale? There's always a little truth in Cheshire's stories, you just never know what parts.
Russell Boiger is a weasel. He's a dodgy dealer of goods and information. Unfortunately many of his dealings have gone sour and his only regular client is Victor Stoker, a badger that hates weasels.
And then there's TOAD... Dudley Cook is a toad with a taste for adventure. He also wants to share the adventure although with his accident record he sometimes has to pay for the company... And there's always a weasel ready to take his money.
