Montjohn Rescue was the Deputy Mayor of New Crobuzon under then-mayor Bentham Rudgutter. Rescue died in 1779, after leading a failed attempt to kill a group of escaped Slake Moths.


Montjohn Rescue was known for perpetually wearing a scarf, no matter the weather. In fact, the original Rescue had died some ten years prior to the events of Perdido Street Station. Rescue's body was given to a Handlinger under the orders of Mayor Rudgutter, after Rescue had attempted to betray the mayor.
