Ok, so I thought I would work on some characters that have been on the backburner for a while and see what people think and if I could imporve them in some way, so here it goes. I'm a little pressed for time, so they'll be coming as soon as possible. Just old Atticus for now.
Atticus Bedlambe: Mad Bad and Dangerous to know
, Atticus Bedlambe possesses one of the most notorious
reputations in Western Europe. Though he's current professional occupation is a Private Detective
, he has dabbled in pretty much everything: Soldier, Sabateur, Inventor, it's all a rich tapestry.
Though gifted with a high intelligence and an aptitude for lateral thinking, Atticus is inconsiderate, cynical, blunt and just loves to prove how better he is compared to everyone else and never takes anything seriously. His reputation as a ladykiller and conman doesn't help him either. He has very few friends as a result and those who do consider him a friend are either able to see past his pretentiousness, or are equally disreputable themselves.That's not to say he's completely heartless. He's just finds it very hard to show his feelings.
He's also a man of many talents. A master of subterfuge and deceit, good to have in a fight, a rather accomplished hunter and a pretty mean magician and tinkerer to boot. He also loves puzzles to no end, which he freely admits had something to do with his career path.
When the story starts he already has an established relationship with his ward and apprentice Irving
, though distinguishing which one is the child and the other is the adult is rather difficult. The two get along rather well. Despite his abundant flaws, Atticus really does care for the boy, and despite acting more like his parent than his apprentice, Irving does look up to the man.
Atticus' niece on the other hand is a different story. They are siply too similiar to get on at first, though as time passes, Atticus can come to appreciate just how blunt and headstring she can be. He even starts to consider himself as a father to his two wards.
Ok, one down. What do you think?
