If Leon is “the Man,” and Josh is “the Man Behind the Man,” then Ewan is “the Man Behind the Man Behind the Man.” He’s the programmer—the silver-fingered genius that keeps the Cat Factory servers ticking over. Over the course of the series, Ewan begins to see his wealth as a means of self-validation, boosting his confidence and even bringing a new special someone into his life. But just when Leon needs Ewan back behind his computer to work on the new game and save the company, the tables begin to turn and Ewan decides it’s time for him to take a more prominent role as a face of the company.
