oday we have the initial sketches for Floote, butler extraordinaire who Knows Things.
Alexia was embarrassed to find that she was reduced to shamefully sneaking out of her own home. It simply would not do to tell her mama she was paying a late night call on a vampire hive. Floote, though disapproving, proved an able ally in her transgression. Floote had been Alessandro Tarabotti’s valet before Alexia was even a twinkle in that outrageous gentleman’s eye. As such, he knew a lot more than just how to butler, and that included a thing or two on the organization of misdemeanors. He hustled his “young miss” out of the servant’s entrance at the back of the house. He had her carefully shrouded in the scullery-maid’s old cloak, and managed to stuff her into a hired cab maintaining a stiff but capable silence all the while.
