Montgomery is a heavy-set Caucasian man with ruddy tan skin, close-cropped grey hair, and pale blue eyes. As part of his strategy of capitalizing on Southern pride and idealized notions of the Confederacy, Montgomery now wears a uniform inspired by the Confederate army but with more modern stylings, hand sewn by his female servants. He carries his sabre when in public, and it is his first tool when it comes to disciplining the men.

Personality

Few people who knew Montgomery before the Fall would have called him a bad person; he was friendly, intellectual, and compassionate, a loving husband and father, sympathetic to the plight of those less fortunate than himself. But he is now a living example of the corruption that occurs when civil restraints are removed. Clifford Montgomery is now in a position to do whatever he wants without fear of reprisal or the condemnation of his social peers. With no one to shame or punish him, he has chosen to give full reign to his all-too-human indulgence. He wears the mantle of his authority as if it entitled him to anything in the world, he rewards men who are loyal and efficient by giving them license to indulge themselves as he does (though to a lesser degree), and he keeps a household of young and pretty female servants who live in abject terror of his anger. In short, he's a thoroughly despicable character who also happens to have a few thousand very well armed and equipped fanatical followers.

Motivations

Control
The character detests the chaos of human society, and seeks to impose order.
Materialism
The character wants to amass great wealth.

History

Clifford Montgomery grew up in South Carolina but came to the University of Georgia for a law degree. In college he was an expert fencer, and in 1975 at the age of 23 he won the Atlantic Coast Conference individual sabre championship. He married a teacher and, after practicing law for about a decade, successfully ran for the Georgia House of Representatives, where he served for eight years until 1997. In that year, the governor appointed him Attorney General of Georgia and he was re-elected twice before Paragon attacked the city. In 2010, shortly after the Fall of Paragon, there was a state-wide election for Attorney General and Montgomery was officially replaced, but he continues to operate with the title in the ruins, arguing, "There is the world Out There, and the world In Here... and In Here, I am the government."

Montgomery maintains a facade of recreating the old city of Atlanta, but he actually has no desire to rejoin the official state government. If that were to happen, his authority would be undermined and he would no longer be able to wield complete executive power.

Powers and Abilities

None.
