MORGANTOWN, W. Va. – The villain has a bit of a limp. He lurks in his castle, which overlooks the forest, not far from the mountains. A fireplace, turned off now since it’s a perfect late-summer morning in the Great Appalachian Valley, divides his office in half. It’s less office than throne, really, modeled after the thrones of the other kings of his profession.
The bowtie is a nice touch. It makes Huggins look like a old-timey West Virginia general store owner who keeps a shotgun behind the counter.
