Rodrigo Tarabotti Character Study! (Special Extras)

A bit behind the magic for you today, Gentle reader.

After his brief appearance at the end of Imprudence, you get a chance to know Rodrigo Tarabotti more in Competence.

Here’s his Pinterst character board for a peak into what he looks like in my head. 

As you can see I had a young Rufus Sewell in mind for this character. All dark and brooding.

I hope you enjoy Rodrigo’s character arc and seeing him evolve in Competence, I had a lot of fun with him.

Yours as ever,

Miss Gail

    I honestly read that line about Rufus Swell in the manner of Dimity

    “I would so love to DARK and BROODING.” Thank you, Miss Quirk, for giving them a voice.
