      Hi, thanks for taking the time to comment. Yes, someone on the Skull’s Facebook page said that it was Ludwig. Being my usual disorganised self I forgot to repost their comments over here ;)

      I guess it should have been obvious by the way he’s laid out that it was going to be someone of importance.
