A, C, B
If A always speaks the truth, then B Is the Good', A is the Ugly', hence C is 'the Bad'; which also means that B is also the truth-teller. Hence, neither A nor B is the truth-teller.
Therefore, C must be the truth-teller, which gives us the following arrangement:
A → the Good;
C → the Bad;
B → the Ugly
