Cedric Constantine Crosby, The entrepreneur #41 [Keystone - ENG 1]

Motto: If you want something you've never had you must do something you've never done.
Group: High Society
Teaser: As a child, his father would tell him how the faithful man obtained everything he needed from God and that success did not depend on human labor at all. Evidently, he thought one day while he was plowing the fields with his father, God knows nothing of what I need. Ten years later nobody could have recognized that young farmer in the figure of Mr. Crosby, so refined in the role of seducer and gentleman, as a ruthless businessman among the wealthy, now his peers. For Mr. Crosby there are those who daydream and those who wake up and get what they want: the former are inevitably subjugated by the latter. In fact, he hardly tolerates anyone who does not have the strength to take charge of his life or worse, those who dismiss this shortcoming and boasting noble ends prefer to subvert the stability of the cruel world from which Mr. Crosby, with such difficulty, managed to emerge triumphant.
On the other hand, he appreciates the company of noblewomen, whom he courts wisely while prefering to listen more than to participate in the discussions of the luminaries he usually meets in receptions of high society: some believe it is to better understand the secrets of men of such stature; the gossips, on the other hand, do not consider the matter as simple as that. Precisely for this reason he avoids people of low rank with unmasked contempt : they remind him too vividly of his humble past, which he renounced many years ago in a sunny field along with his name .

Relations: He travels with his servant Nathan Goodwill. Considers Annie Besant a busybody considering the impertinent letters he got from her. He respects Sir Charles Cowdery. Rumors say he proposed to Miriam Alexandrine Rotschild but she rejected him. Arthur Conan Doyle was occasionally his doctor. Crosby has also for months been weaving a close business deal with American steel magnate Clayton William White.
