    Summary

    "Double or nothing," said Webster abruptly.

    "How exactly do you mean to double 'everything I had?'" said Ash. He meant it to come out level, but there was a quaver in his voice.

    "One more trick," Webster said. "Play, and win or lose you will walk away with your fortune." Ash stared at him. Webster made an impatient gesture. "I don't want or need your money. Or your house. Or your coat and shirt, come to that."

    It was an offer of princely generosity. Ash's mouth was dry. "And what would you have from me?" he asked.

    Something flared in Webster's cool expression for a moment, like a shark flashing a fin in still waters. "A month," he said.

    Summary

    He has a highly regressive personality and may be impulsive, engaging in acts of compulsive and pleasurable wish-fulfillment. He is secretly a moralist, though he will act to save others even as he judges them. However, his is a personality always on the verge of disintegration: he does not have a strongly drawn line between "self" and "other" and is likely to engage in acts of reckless self-disregard. Very probably homosexual.
