Averice or Greed perhaps, he acts against Arthur's
family through finances and controlling he stock
exchange. Also through Monday owing him money. He is
also a great collector of treasures from the secondary
world, so so-far your theory is holding up.
I also noticed one strange co-incidence between it and
the book I am now reading "Well of lost plots". In
Grim Tuesday there is a trip to the sun in a flying
ship while in Lost Plots Thursday Next lives in a
SUNderland flying boat. The next book I'll be reading
is Predator's Gold which has an airship on the cover
as well.
