From the Tales of the American Burden, Date Unknown.
Number 13 in C.W. Boyle’s Burden Chronology Guide: “The name ‘Cephalophoric War’ today is associated by most with the famous head carriers, David Ocampo and Jacob Coffin. However the first, and most depraved, is the villainous Arthur Daedalus. Long believed to be dead, even to wife Abigail, Arthur Deadalus continued to manipulate the events of the War in Boston from the shadows. Duplicitous, underhanded, and manipulative, Arthur Daedalus had his hands in almost all of Boston’s key events from the beginning of the Burden, to the end of the Cephalophoric War. His fate remains unknown.”
