Another character from the Maltese Corsairs story, a sketch I started yesterday:


This picture.. or maybe just his garb, makes Frostbite look shorter and squatter than I imagine him, so I guess that’ll be something to work on in revision.  He is in fact a tiger, though the shape of his face has caused rumors to spread that he’s part wolf.  Another rumor is that his name was just ‘Frost’ until one day when he gnawed another man’s leg off in a fight.   Somehow his generally gentlemanly demeanor tends to make people believe that story more than otherwise: that’s just the kind of thing a guy like him would do if he snapped, is bite another guy’s leg off.  This, combined with his rank as first mate, pretty much ensures that no one will cross him, or indeed even approach him at all unless absolutely necessary.

I suppose that before piratical life his name was Giacomo.
