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. 

Staedtler pigment liner, Gimp.

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!

Wow, aren't you a rude, ungrateful asshole? I was just trying to be nice. If people keep correcting you, maybe you should try actually paying attention. ;p Regardless, you have no reason to behave in such a manner.

I swear, what the hell is wrong with people these days? X_x

well you didn't need to go out of the way to make me feel like that, did you? that's quite rude yourself..
calling people names instead of simply calming both sides (if that was really needed, i don't pick up any sense of me being a "rude ungrateful asshole".) is not the way to go.
how does simply stating a point about how often i get replies from people turn me into an asshole?
it doesn't. it hurts my feelings, and it's not kind to do.

If you honestly can't understand how or why what you said was incredibly rude, unnecessary, and just downright condescending, then I can only feel sorry for anyone who has to deal with you on a day-to-day basis. If you don't want people to get angry with you, maybe you shouldn't tell people off for completely innocuous comments.

I'm blocking you now for being utterly impossible to deal with. CanisAlbus doesn't deserve to have such hate-filled commentary on her work, and I don't deserve to be shat on for trying to be nice.
