|Location||Northampton, Massachusetts, United States|
|Introduction||Crusader--that is, Leslie Higgins--graduated from Assumption College with majors in Political Science, Philosophy, and Theology. A lover of soda, a frequenter of coffeehouses, a longtime sonneteer, a fan of manga and anime, and a lifelong monarchist, he is an ex-atheist convert to traditional Roman Catholicism and a supporter of the Crusade of Saint Benedict Center and the Social Kingship of Christ. Unafraid of mixing politics and religion, he is a Republican of the paleoconservative variety. Quixotic and reactionary, he's often cheery, but can be rather in-thy-face.|
