He is a bigoted television host who works for the Norsefire government, spreading their hateful and fascist propaganda. In the past, Prothero helped to plant the seeds of Norsefire's rise to power by serving at the Larkhill Ressettlement Camp, where he brutalized many of Norsefire's targeted citizens, including V.
Lewis is a pale-skinned man with a potbelly. His choice of attire has a black coat, a pink shirt, and a maroon necktie.
After an impressive military career with numerous Middle-East missions, Lewis founded a pharmaceutical company and joined the fascist Norsefire-Party around fanatical politician Adam Sutler.
Later, he was appointed as commander of the Larkhill Resettlement Camp where he conducted many experiments on prisoners. He also abused and tortured at a whim. He was one of the supporters of the conspiracy that cost the lives of about a hundred thousand innocent people, caused by a bio-engineered plague he helped to develop during his days.
Shortly after Sutler was elected High-Chancellor Prothero's pharmaceutical company provided the desperately needed cure for the mysterious virus. As a "hero and patriot" he was rewarded with immense wealth and an own TV-show called "The Voice of London" and became the lead telecaster of the British Television Network (BTN).
Over the years he developed a massive narcissistic personality disorder. Every part of his luxury-apartment was covered with mirrors, so he always could admire and worship himself at any moment, even in the bathroom.
One day, Lewis Prothero is in his home and takes a shower after a workday. Watching a redifusion of him, he is unsatisfied with the angle of the camera. He then calls Roger and immediately asks the cameraman to be fired without question. After, he takes his shower repeating himself what he has said in TV; that he will fight the terrorist himself if he meets him. Ironically, he discovers that V managed to break in his home much to his horror. Not recognizing him at first, he tries to call his bodyguards but V deactivated the alarm system and tells him so by calling him "commander". Asking why he calls him by this nickname, V reveals Prothero's past at Larkhill. Prothero therefore recognizes him instantly as one of his prisoners while seemingly resigning to his fate. The police finds him killed with poison by V while in the bathroom.
Strength through unity – unity through faith!!! I'm a God-fearing Englishman and I am god-damn proud of it!
~ One of Prothero's favorite lines.
There will be no negotiation, Roger. When I arrive in the morning, the Paddy will be gone. I'm looking at the tape right now, and he has no idea how to light me. My nose looks like Big fucking Ben! Listen to me, you bleeding sod. England prevails because I say it does! And so does every lazy cunt on this show, and that includes you! Find another DOP, or find yourself another job!
