Peter Creedy is the successor of Derek Almond at the Finger, the law enforcement branch of the Norsefire government. Creedy is a cruel, bullying man, indifferent to the suffering of others. When it becomes clear that the Leader’s mind is deteriorating, Peter Creedy begins assembling a private army, using Alistair Harper’s help. Creedy seems to be planning to assemble a force large enough to stage a military coup and make himself the new Leader of England. Creedy’s plan backfires when Harper, who’s made a deal with Helen Heyer, betrays him to his death.
