Guido Fawkes was a very minor player in Robert Catesby's unthought out & counterproductive action
Fawkes was the most minor & therefore most vulnerable plotter.
That is precisely why he was the first caught & his being first caught is his main claim to fame.
King James was the son of a Catholic mother who had been executed for her Catholicism.
He had far greater sympathy for Catholics than for the then emerging Puritans.
The plotters "attempt to address the oppression of Roman Catholics in England" was disastrous for Roman Catholics.
