Konrad “Kon” Teirant, CRASS Chief of Accounting is a piece of work. You may not be surprised that the main person on whom I base him is pretty messed up.
When I was a high school graduate, all of 17, I worked a total of two days at a drive-in movie theater (yes, we still had one). The first day, I did really well and my supervisor really liked me. I was happy to have a job, even in the horribly run-down concession stand. Don’t ask me about the bathrooms.
The next day, in comes the owner. He could not be more miserable. He could not wait to complain how he thought every little thing I did was wrong: “Fill those popcorn bags. Fill them more. Does that look full?”
This tyrant let me go and never paid me.
He owns a chain of theaters across my area. I saw him a few years later in a restaurant gloating about getting “big bags” and how he was flown down to Georgia by Lord only know who, and “given an Armani suit.”
Below is a very early idea for this character, orignally named King Tyrant, circa 2003.
