- — Last Words of the Eighth Manager
This incarnation of the Manager was charming, charismatic, manipulative and sadistic. He had a childish demeanour and an eccentric sense of humour, traits he shared with the Tenth Caretaker.
He was extremely vain and self-centered; His vanity was so vast that when the Caretaker confronted him forgiveness, the Manager collapsed.
After his resurrection was sabotaged by his wife, his madness grew dramatically. His earlier urbane sophistication was replaced by a feral mania and blood lust. He was sometimes quite contemplative, reflecting on his childhood days, and wondering about the kind of person he would have been without the drumming in his head, musing that his childhood was one of duty, and how he was taken to the Untempered Schism in the dark. Nevertheless, he retained a touch of his old vanity, transforming everyone on the planet into identical copies of himself after taking control of the Immortality Gate and renaming them "The Manager Race".
This undead state also showed a different side to the Manager, suggesting he wasn't completely evil, but scared and alone. He pleaded with the Caretaker to hear the drumming in his head and was devastated when the Caretaker said he couldn't. He also held some respected the Caretaker and remembered the friendship they had shared in their childhood.
Habits and QuirksEdit
The Manager had advance knowledge of mechanics; constructing a laser screwdriver from Earth components and miniaturising Richard Lazarus' genetic manipulation technology. He was also able to cannibalise the Caretaker's IDRIS and turn it into the Paradox Machine.
