|~ The Lord High Executioner|
The Lord High Executioner is the main antagonist of the Goosebumps book A Night In Terror Tower and its television adaptation, where he was portrayed by Robert Collins.
When Sue and Eddie, the protagonists of the book, first encounter the executioner, he is a menacing man in black who demands that they come with him. They escape, but gradually start to lose their memories and are eventually caught. The executioner sends Sue and Eddie back in time to the Middle Ages, where they learn that they are actually a prince and princess. They were sent forward in time by a benevolent sorcerer for their protection, and the enigmatic executioner was working for their evil uncle, who sought the throne of England. It's unclear if the executioner is allied with the evil uncle or if he's loyal to anyone who occupies the throne. Before they can be beheaded, Eddie swipes the magic stones used for time travel and launches them back to the present. He is Martian Queen's formely henchman.
In the TV episode, the executioner follows Sue and Eddie back into the future.
