But for Tarquin, he doesn't seem to have an "I lose" condition. From the plan he detailed to Elan, he seems to have planned for everything. He's essentially the "perfect" bad guy, and that just rubs me the wrong way.
Well, Elan seems to have thought about some plan for that. I know it's Elan but still, I wouldn't dismiss it.
