The Sweep, formerly Clarence Bowles, is a Darkling of the Back Stairs Mob.


Now then, little one, my proposal: I will dispose of the odious thing under your bed, and you in return will leave a cup of milk and three shillings in the fireplace every night for a month. Are we agreed?
Once a socially invisible itinerant servant, this Tunnelgrub was taken by the Secret-Eater for his greed for scandalous truths. Forced to crawl the deep places of Faerie to seek secrets, the Sweep fled when he found the secret of how to escape. On his return, the Darkling took up work as a chimney sweep, there finding his old passion and a new one — protecting the children of these houses from the monsters lurking in shadows. The Sweep often enters Pledges of protection with these children.


This changeling bears a tall, thin, nearly boneless frame; his height is difficult to determine accurately, since he walks with a hunch. He wears smoked-glass spectacles, since bright light hurts his eyes, which are little more than wrinkled slits. The Sweep’s skin is pallid and worm-like.
