Totally the Wizard of Oz -- who else is the embodiment of Laziness, Impatience, and Hubris?
- Laziness: sends others to do his dirty work. E.g. sends Dorothy and the gang on his mission.
- Impatience: didn't have time to build a real emerald city, so he just makes everyone wear green-tint goggles. Sweet shortcut.
- Hubris: the guy arrives in Oz and tells everyone he's a Wizard.
