I#59 (fb) - BTS) - During a period in which England's Excalibur
superhero team was busy with supervillains, secret arms dealer Sir
Raleigh Chamberlain's underworld dealings flourished.
(Excalibur I#59) - While at the opera, Sir Raleigh
Chamberlain bought drinks for Nightcrawler and his date, Cerise, and
when he was pointed out as the man who sent the drinks, Nightcrawler
recognized Raleigh as a flamboyant arms dealer. As Nightcrawler looked
over, Raleigh raised his glass and smiled, taunting Nightcrawler with
the fact that Excalibur had recently been so busy with Vixen and
Sat-Yr-9 that they had not the time for the lower echelons of the
criminal underworld. An energy blast from the criminal Knight Errant
soon surprised Raleigh and knocked his date from the balcony and, as
Nightcrawler rescued Raleigh's date, Raleigh promised to be gone by
dawn. Upon hearing Raleigh's remarks, Nightcrawler commented that at
least some good had come from the Knight Errant's attack.

Sir Raleigh Chamberlain's eye color was impossible to
determine as he was only ever seen in shadow or squinting. His height
and weight were impossible to approximate as the only time he was near
any character whose height and weight had been officially determined,
he was kneeling.
