Nigel Mallard

"Actually, I'm quite a good dancer," Nigel responds, politely amused. "But you do speak a sliver of truth,. Folk dances have never interested me, and I have never attempted one, so you're right in that I probably wouldn't be very good at them." He smiles. "My talents lie in ballroom dancing, my preferred dance being the waltz. Perhaps I could show you sometime." @barkybarkwoof

About

Current Status: Recently employed at S.H.U.S.H. Central as an agent in their Department of Supernatural Investigations, serving as an informant for F.O.W.L.'s High Command.  Not happy about it.

Nigel Mallard oversees F.O.W.L. operations in the UK.  He gets his orders from Chief Agent Steelbeak and, on occasion, directly from High Command.

When hiding his true nature, he typically comes across as an unassuming mild-mannered duck.  Polite, courteous and generally helpful.

In truth, Nigel is arrogant, manipulative, silver-tongued, power-hungry and remorseless... willing to do anything up to and including murder if it will get him what he wants.  He is incapable of feeling love, empathy, grief and compassion... but can emulate these emotions quite effectively.

Raised by an aunt who was estranged from the Mallards, Nigel knows nothing of his family.

His ultimate goal is to overthrow High Command (whom he feels is incompetent) and take over as the sole leader of F.O.W.L.

                Standing, the paper dropped just like the subject.

                "Well Nigel," Emphasis on pronouncing that with as much -nerd- as possible. "It's been real memorable."

                Mostly sarcasm.

                "But I have other plans for today so," Negaduck definition of plans was not as innocent as it sounded. "Catch you later."

                Ironically, because you'll never catch me.

                  Scrawny? Look who's talking, Shortstop.

                  Nigel was unfazed, however. He'd been called far worse things that also happened to be far more accurate.

                  “If that's your way of asking for a name, you must have a terrible time with the ladies.”

                  If Negaduck truly had an informant in SHUSH, though, the villain could easily get that information in other ways. Fortunately, as Nigel was highly particular about keeping his name out of FOWL records and correspondence, it would be difficult to prove he was affiliated with the organization.

                  Less trouble than having to keep track of aliases all of the time.

                  “Nigel Mallard.” A gentlemanly nod of the head, out of habit.

                  If 'friend' was another term for 'person I will keep alive until they're no longer useful,' then, yes. Total BFFs.

                    "Now to be clear-" The newspaper rolled up and waggled at the other. Bad dog. Stay. "I would never, ever work with an actual puppy."

                    Not unless, of course, it benefited me. Or it came with barbecue sauce.

                    "But even if I did, why would I tell a scrawny little carpetwetter whose name I don't even know?"

                    An invitation. You want details, you could at least give me some basics. I share, you share. Yay friends!

                      "Given you appear to share an IQ with some of the lower classes of the animal kingdom, I can see why they might take a liking to you."

                      Of course he was casual. Letting Negaduck think he was getting to him would only give him more control over the situation. And if there was one thing Nigel refused to give up, it was control.

                      Still, it was hard to miss the darkening of his features upon mention of the Cassowary Virus.

                      "What would someone like you need with the Cassowary Virus? I thought you were more into the 'hack-and-slash, blow-things-up-in-a-fiery-rampage' sort of destruction?"

                      Seriously, did Negaduck even possess the intellect needed to use something like that?

                      Then came the million-dollar question: "And just who, may I ask, is this puppy you were you able to train to fetch that information for you?"

                      What with you being so good with animals, and all.
