The Dignified Devil has his eyes wide open to the world around him. He’s a man of his time, but not blind to the past; he’s ethical, but not self-righteous; honest, but he knows when to keep his mouth shut. He seeks pleasure—both physical and intellectual—but does not chase it. He’s a loyal friend and a formidable enemy, a passionate lover and a rational member of society.

The Dignified Devil has no illusions; he’s put childish things behind him. He expects respect because he gives it, yet knows nobody owes him anything. He constantly strives for perfection, all the while understanding that true perfection is unattainable.

Reports of his death have been greatly exaggerated. The Dignified Devil is making a comeback.
