Towerpedia:Tick-Tock Man

The Tick-Tock Man is a fictional character in author Stephen King's The Dark Tower series. Leader of The Grays, Tick-Tock is known for his extremely short temper. He once killed a woman with his throwing knife for her annoying laugh.

Tick-Tock's real name is Andrew Quick. He is the great-grandson of David Quick, the outlaw prince. His name comes from the coffin-shaped clock he wears around his neck, which runs backward.

Tick-Tock is one of Lud's few healthy inhabitants. He has dirty blond hair, green eyes, and a heavily muscled upper body. He reminds Jake of a cross between a Viking and a giant from a child's tale.

Tick-Tock is extremely interested in controlling more of the computer systems in Lud, and looks for any opportunity to do so.
