Langley was foolish, coward and incompetent man. He entered the court thanks to Timothy, who was in need of subordinates and was trying to get the king's favor with all his effort.
Proof of his incompetence was capturing and killing women at random in his witch hunt; he never had any substantial proof.
Weimar asked Timothy to cease the witch hunt campaign because Langley's subordinates had captured and tortured common women who weren't witches. In response to Weimar's accusations, Langley told all guilty personnel were punished with lashings and a fine of 25 silver royals.
While making excuses he almost exposed Timothy's intentions behind the witch hunt, to the latter's annoyance. Eventually he was ordered to verify the arrested women with priest's help before torturing them, otherwise he would be thrown into moat as fish feed.
