To them that are seeking the gold must be prepared to
Meet the sloth at midnight, here by the rocks
Meet the sloth at twelve o’clock on the dot
But if he’s late, don’t blame him
He’ll be busy measuring the very approximate distance
— from Toehider - “Meet the Sloth”
- A quiet, calculated army-type. Fellow team-member of The Architect. Not real talkative.
- We suspect that he is reporting back to
- Does not carry his credentials, granting plausible deniability
The Sloth trusts nobody. Whereas Ink must “ride the line” between “trust, but verify” and “verify, then trust”, and
$REDACTED only follows the former, the Sloth may only follow the latter. He does not trust anyone until he has proof of their intentions.
This, naturally, has put him into a state of hyper-paranoia, such that he does not even trust himself. Until he is sure that The Architect can verify his online identity, he will remain hidden in the shadows - slowly climbing-down from the (metaphorical) tree.
It is this caution that will protect all three of the team members.
Funny how they think us naive when we’re on the brink
Innocence was fleeting like a season
Cannot comprehend, lost so many men
Lately, all the ghosts turned into reasons and excuses
— from Grimes - “Delete Forever”

< [email protected]: My favorite song in the world is about a Sloth.
< [email protected]: Sloths are slow, deliberate creatures. They may not be fast, but they survive.
< [email protected]: Sloth has all these other double-meanings in my head.
