Player of Inclination the Vice is one of the actors. He offers Sir Thomas a choice of plays to hear at his feast for the Lord Mayor and the Aldermen.
He plays the blatantly evil roles in the actors’ plays. He is one of the senior members of the group, and tries to explain to Sir Thomas just why the play might not be ready on time or go quite as planned. Deeply impressed by Sir Thomas’s abilities, he is good at math and logic. In costume he carries a bridle in his hand and has a dagger at his belt.
