Theodore Steves is a highly erudite madman in snake-skin shoes.
From the outset Steves is different and special. An unhealthy relationship with his mother and a cold, detached father have long lasting effects on the state of his mind, culminating in a man who believes himself omniscient, a deity, with comedic disdain for all humankind.
He sets up a cult-like commune to secure his position as High Priest of Madmen with a bunch of criminal misfits as his own private army.
His vision: The Empire of Steves.
