Cranly is more animated than Stephen though he has the face of a "priest-like death mask". Stephen is much more intense and withdrawn than Cranly. Stepen's idea of a good time is to bounce aesthetic theory ideas off of Cranly. Cranly gets more personal than Steven would like; the two eventually have a falling out over Cranly's personal questions around religion.
