Who is "The Crooked Man"

edited February 2014 in The Wolf Among Us

Maybe it's because I haven't read the comics, or maybe it's a new character that nobody knows. But just incase, who is "The Crooked Man" that Beauty said she took a loan from.

  • I don't know for sure, there is no Crooked Man in the comics, but there is an English nursery rhyme that goes:
    "There was a crooked man, and he walked a crooked mile.
    He found a crooked sixpence upon a crooked stile.
    He bought a crooked cat, which caught a crooked mouse,
    And they all lived together in a little crooked house."
    Several Fables characters originate from nursery rhymes (King Cole, Boy Blue, Georgie Porgie), so to me it seems to be the most likely answer.

  • Oh, and episode 3 is called "A Crooked Mile", which is a phrase in the poem. I should make a thread about this.

    He's linked with the Tweedle twins, and Beauty took out a loan from him, that's about all we know so far. If there's more, I'd certainly like to know it!

  • I think The Crooked Man is the tweedles boss because we never found out who it was from them directly so am putting my money on The Crooked Man it could be anyone really of course I could be wrong

  • The Hunchback of Notre Dame, perhaps? Then again, maybe not. I do not know anything about Ep. 2 sorry.

  • I haven't read comics but if it is no crooked man character and the crooked man is the twins boss. He is a wealthy fable. Only wealthy fable I know
    Is blue beard. So could he be the crooked man?

    In the book "The Book of Lost Things" (which had a similar theme of twisted fairy tales) the villain of the novel was also called The Crooked Man and was implied to be Rumpelstiltskin. I don't know if this would have any effect on the fables universe, seeing as "The Book of Lost Things" is not an old school fairy tale, but I could see them drawing on similar sources and perhaps resulting in similar uses of the name.

    He looks like a old skeletal Kenny, from what I've seen

  • I really want to see that picture

  • "There once was a crooked man who walked a crooked mile,

    He found a crooked sixpence upon a crooked stile,

    He bought a crooked house, then a crooked cat who chased a crooked mouse."

    That's how it goes, I think (off the top of my head).

  • I can't post it again or I'll get banned. I'll tell you this though, he looks really creepy. Pretty awesome.

  • The Crooked Man is The Crooked Man.And,supposedly,Dee and Dum's boss.And a very bad Fable,by the way the others speak of him.

  • Wasn't there a model or something posted on here that got removed earlier?

  • edited February 2014

    Yeah, I posted it and it got removed. I'd really like to post it again, along with a video of his full in game model, but I think I'll get banned if I do. I don't get how we can't post a pic of Crooky, because over at the WD sub forum, they are leaked pics of "Troy" and Johnny and what not.

    But I can describe him, if you guys like, though

  • How do you know how his model looks?I'm not sure if i wanna see it,i guess it practically counts as a spoiler...But,seriously,where did you find that model?

  • My forum bud Heisenberg dug through the files and we found the Crooked Man's model. He swapped Crooky's model with Snow's and we managed to see what he looked by watching a scene from Episode 2 with Snow in it (who now has the model of Crooky). I the posted a screenshot of him and a face shot. But a mod removed it. I'll tell you one thing though, he looks damn awesome and hella creepy

    Only if your into old guys with skeletal feet and hands with a deformed eyeball.

    He does have an awesome Kenny-type Stache though.

    Shit. I've said too much already...

    runs off and hides

  • Yeah man would be awesome if Gavin hammon is voicing him, but I higly doubt it

  • I hope the guy who voices Chuck voices him.

    The way he said "The bell tolls for thee" was perfectly creepy. Would fit for Crooky well.

  • I loved that rhyme as a kid. I hope they say it in the episode. It's almost guaranteed Crooky will show up as the title of episode 3 is "A Crooked Mile"

    "There once was a crooked man who walked a crooked mile, He found a crooked sixpence upon a crooked stile, He bought a crooked house, then a crooked cat who chased a crooked mouse." That's how it goes, I think (off the top of my head).

  • Yeah, that rhyme is definitely wrong, I think I'm missing a line or two.

  • Seems mostly right to me. But I haven't seen it in a while

  • Telltale has a chance to make the 'Crooked Man' insanely creepy in his appearance if he ever appears, if he wasn't creepy enough already. And possibly a fight with him and Bigby, perchance?

  • edited February 2014

    If you're hoping for him to look creepy, Your wish has already been granted. I've seen him first hand. He looks insanely creepy and it's awesome. He even had a deformed eye and skeletal hands and feet (along with a Kenny-esque stache). And I agree, a fight with him would nice. I just hope he has an awesome voice to complete his creepy character...

    Indeed! I saw your comments concerning him on another topic on here, I believe. Although I'll just wait patiently to see him for myself without looking at leaked pictures of his model, whether that would be shown in some official episode screenshots or a glimpse of him in future teasers for this game. (if they do that) Thanks for the info though!

  • I believe the last line is
    "He bought a crooked cat who caught a crooked mouse
    and they all lived together in a little crooked house"

    "There once was a crooked man who walked a crooked mile, He found a crooked sixpence upon a crooked stile, He bought a crooked house, then a crooked cat who chased a crooked mouse." That's how it goes, I think (off the top of my head).

    Im imagining this bent over old man walking with a cane. Strangely, I could see him being some kind of crime boss. His physical frailties belie his ruthless mind.
