    Lewis Prothero last edited by gravenraven on 06/12/23 12:51PM View full history


    Very little is known about Lewis Prothero. As a young man he was a soldier, and following the establishment of Norsefire's regime in England, he was employed as a guard at the Larkhill resettlement camp. He was present at the camp when V escaped, and was one of those who survived. Promoted through the Norsefire party, he became the Voice of Fate, the purported voice of the computer that manages much of the government.


    Lewis Prothero was created by Alan Moore and David Lloyd. He made his first appearance in Warrior #2.
