Nimrod Pennyroyal quotes from Predator's Gold

Nimrod Pennyroyal quotes from Mortal Engines's Predator's Gold


We first meet Professor Nimrod Pennyroyal in the second book of the Predator Cities Quartet. Presenting himself as an author who has traveled to all kinds of strange and far flung places and written of the adventures he had whilst he was there. A bit of an alcoholic, he's a coward and a liar.

But of course the people he meets such as Tom and Hester have no idea he's a fraud and quickly fall pray to his charms.

Quotes:

When the going gets tough, the sensible conceal themselves behind large items of furniture.
