Ichabod Boyle body

Ichabod's corpse as found by the City Watch.

Ichabod Boyle was an entrepreneur and supporter of the arts, murdered by the Crown Killer in 1852.


Ichabod is a nephew of Lady Esma Boyle. He became the handler of the Boyle family affairs after his aunt had withdrawn from the position, following the tragic events of the 1851 Boyle Masquerade.[1]

Ichabod Boyle ran the Boyle Company, a trading business, from his office in the Tower District. He opposed Emily Kaldwin's rule over the Empire and published a pamphlet to undermine her authority. This made him a target of the Crown Killer, who gruesomely murdered him on the 16th day of the Month of Earth, 1852.[2]
