Cast of Characters - Sir Helios Tippitoes
Manny Tippitoe's father was the Lord of Stockington Island and Director of the Tippitoes Wool Concern.  The case files contain an interview between Detective Schuyler Van Stalwert from the city police force and Sir Helios conducted in 1887.
  Sir Helios left the details of running the family business to his personal assistant, Robin Goodfellow.  The mysterious Goodfellow was instrumental in the sudden growth in distribution and popularity of Tippitoes socks and stockings at the end of the 19th Century.  However, to this day there is no documentation concerning who, exactly Robin Goodfellow was.  How a relatively small wool company based on an island in the North Sea came to manufacture and sell socks across the world is, as yet, unknown.  Goodfellow himself disappeared shortly after the birth of Emmanuel Alva Tippitoes on the night of a full moon.
