"Halt, you villians! Unhand that science!" -Ambrosius Goldenloin Edit
Sir Ambrosius GoldenloinEdit
Sir Ambrosius Goldenloin is the hero of the Institute of Law Enforcement and Heroics and saviour of the kingdom. He is often instructed by The Director to foil his former childhood friend/ex secret(ish) boyfriend Ballister Blackheart's evil schemes. He is shown to be very arrogant and acts like he should know a lot of big words but acually doesn't.
Goldenloin has long, flowing blonde hair, most often worn over his shoulders. He is often seen wearing golden armor, and is also said to wear a codpiece.
Goldenloin has interactions with many of the characters:
Ballister Blackheart- Goldenloin's former best friend/ex secret(ish) boyfriend, turned nemisis, and love interest. Goldenloin is responsible for Blackheart's lack of a right arm, with he blew up with a weponized lance given to him by the Director. He did this on purpose, although he is hesitant to admit it. Although they are often cold towards each other, Goldenloin still appears to care for his former friend. There are things in the book that reference the past romantic relationship between him and Ballister. For example, On page 220, when he tried to tell Ballister something, likely that he loved him, in case he didn't make it back alive from fighting Nimona, and The Director saying qoute (pg126) : "Your motivations are quite transparent. I know what the nature of your relationship was, I made it clear that I dissaproved." and "If your fixation on him has impeded your ability to do your job, than he has truly has outlived his usefullness." Along with Ballister often saving his life a vice versa, these comments show their past romantic relationship.
The Director- Goldenloin is employed by The Director of the of the Institution of Law Enforcement and Heroics, who is mostly indefferent to him, often saying how easy if would be to replace him. Though she says this, she was the one who said he was her choice for the Institution's Champion, and gave him the lance so he could become so. Even though Goldenloin is a memeber of the Institution, The Director does not tell him that the reports of Jaderoot are true (blaming it on Ballister), and she obviously does not trust him with the knowledge that the Institution is not necessarily good.
Nimona- Goldenloin first meets Nimona when she and Ballister Blackheart break into a labratory. She processeds to treaten him, and shrugs it off by calling her "spunky." When Nimona goes after a runaway goon and the lab sequences to self-destuct, he quickly gets Ballister out tell him she can turn into a turtle or something. When the labtratory exploseds, he lets Ballister go and later tells The Director of the new sidekick. After the news of Jaderoot breaks out, he is sent to investigate the TV station that broadcast the news, in hopest of finding the quote (pg 47) "anchorwoman." (Nimona). He is tricked by her pink painted rat and she gets away before he can catch her. When Ballister and Nimona rob the bank, he calls her a quote (pg69) "little girl disquised as a monster" but after she heals her severed head, turns into a giant lava dragon, and escapes thier trap, he says quote (pg162) "We [him and The Director] assumed she was a girl disguised as a monster but she's not. She's a monster disguised as a girl." He was there when The Director had captused Nimona in a test tube, and saves Ballister's life before she can fry him to a crisp. Becasue of the way she escaped from the test tube, he calls her a monster that they need to kill, much to Ballister's annoyance. He later tries to kill the cell dragon half of Nimona on page 233, only pausing to say "I'm sorry." The cell dragon responses by slashing him in the face, and then throwing him across the room, making him fall unconscious. He hasn't spoken to or seen Nimona since.
