In the wake of Racket's death or potential disbanding, Scrofula took heart in a letter of condolence written by Crush, rereading it many times. Combined with Racket's good opinion of Crush and his tactical prowess and his lack of faith in Axe's, Scrofula decided to try and convince Crush to turn to Squashcourt and help fight the Union. Despite initial refusal, he was treated with deference and "jailed" in the library, Scrofula would try repeatedly to sway him with offers of leniency for him and his mother Queen Post to no avail. The royal esteem quickly ran out in the face of Crush's and Dunkin's "betrayal", to the point he was sent to the worst prison cell.
Crush respected King Scrofula, thinking him a very merry king who trusted him a great deal. He sent the king a letter of condolence when Racket died. His sympathy for the king in the wake of his son's death quickly vanished when he was asked to betray the union and turn to Squashcourt. He came to see the king as stupid and his plan as evil. He tried to convince the king to stop his plan, and used his good graces to try and formulate a counter plan, but the King came to see him as dangerous once he got vital information thanks to Dunkin McClown.
