D. Oswald Heist is a member of the Cyclopean race and a famous novelist from Quietus. Heist is most popular for his book In Lieu of Flowers, but also wrote the novel A Night Time Smoke.
His writing secretly communicated that there was an opposite of war and two sides could come together. This inspired Alana to journey to Quietus and visit him in his Lighthouse. The group enjoyed the company for too long and soon saw Prince Robot IV come to visit so they hid in the attic.
The Prince stayed in the house and spoke with him about his work and the rebels coming to see him. Heist claimed the book had no message and he only wrote it for money. Heist revealed to the Prince that he had a son, Parone, who volunteered to fight for Landfall but later committed suicide when returning from the war. The Prince called him a traitor and Heist pulled a gun on him but was shot in the knee. He claimed the gun was a prop.
As the two sat and waited for the rebels to come, who were actually already in the attic, Heist claimed war perverted everyone. When he pushed what the Prince saw before he died, he realized he saw an orgy. Heist claimed the opposite of war, is sex. Having enough of the torture, Klara, his short-term love, came down from the attic to attack the prince. When she was shot at by the Prince, Heist unleashed his prop gun on the Robot revealing it wasn't a fake at all.
