Hungarian Rhapsody no. 2 by CanisAlbus Hungarian Rhapsody no. 2 by CanisAlbus

The musical genius Sylvain, my newest character (remember the severed head guy?).
His time and location are early 20s, Paris. He's French with a Mexican heritage.
He's mostly quiet, a bit odd and alienated and doesn't seem to understand others well, which leads some to think that he's acting eccentric or being rude on purpose. He has slight anger management issues, which tend to show when someone interrupts him in the middle of playing or composing. It's highly likely that he's somewhere on the autism spectrum, perhaps he has Asperger syndrome.
Like stated before, he's exceptionally talented at playing piano. No wonder, he's absolutely obsessed with it. The songs that are fast, frenzied and challenging are most typical for him, Hungarian Rhapsody no. 2 by Franz Liszt being his personal favorite. He's very lively and ardent when playing (messy hair and unraveled bow tie are usually results of this). 
His breed is undefined, but there's most likely a bit of poodle in him. Before you ask, yes, he does have ears, but they're small, flat and hidden under the fur. He uses big round glasses, even on feral form. The white ticking on his back is caused by vitiligo.

Oh my gosh I love how vintage they look with the hair style and the glasses and tie! And very amusing how the image on the left is a result of him jamming big time on a piano, I can just imagine him going like a madman on it!

Miscommunication among others is a common symptom that comes along with AS. Seeing as it would be a few decades before AS was first "diagnosed/discovered" (assuming you mean 1920s), I can understand the confusion with his attitude among other people. The obsession is another common trait among those with Asperger's; often we will find something to focus on and we will focus on it for the rest of our lives. For me, it's music, just like Sylvain. Some might find it as cars, some might find it as painting, card games, the outdoors, etc. Good luck getting us out of these obsessions easily!

I have (suffer from) AS as well, and if you need any pointers for a personality, I'd be happy to help!
