Alexia Character Study (Special Extras)

Here, Gentle Reader are the notes and thoughts that began Alexia Tarabotti…

“Many a gentleman had likened his first meeting with her to downing a very strong cognac when one was expecting to imbibe fruit juice – that is to say, startling and apt to leave one with a distinct burning sensation.” ~ Soulless

“She was the type of woman who, if thrown into a briar patch, would start to tidy it up by stripping off all the thorns.” ~ Blameless

General Description: Black hair, slightly curly (usually worn up), tan skin tone (coffee colored), large dark brown eyes, nose on the large size (Roman-hook), generous mouth, tall, and very curvy.

Gena Bellman from Leverage Season 4
Italian actress Sabrina Impacciatore
Angel Coulby as Gwen in Merlin (2008-2012)

Other things to note: arches eyebrow, talks a lot, very animated, gesticulates with her hands, mostly sarcastic or suspicious, not smiley.

Here is a collection of images that remind me of Alexia.
