Christopher has Asperger's syndrome and is the narrator of this novel. He has the difficult relationship with other people common to those with severe Asperger's, and he doesn't like to be touched. He is incapable of telling lies. When he finds out about Wellington's death, he decides to begin a search for his killer. Because of his condition, Chris can only be himself. He cannot process the emotional nuances of lying or attempting to be somebody he is not.
