Flug headcanon

 So, today I was thinking about Flug and how he managed to work with BH through (apperantly, I thinking about this ol’ photo with Al Capone??) so many years and I cam up with this story (I’m not gonna say everything bc I’m thinking about drawing comic):

 Flug was a young, german doctor who managed to cam to London in some year of 19th century. There he met a strange man, who was insisting on calling him ‘Black Hat’. He was soul of the company, charmant, elegant, everything doctor wanted to be. Not much time has passed and they becam friends. Doctor wasn’t disturbed by fact this man was probably some kind of demon. Some time had passed again, and Flug ended up by doing a contract with BH.

 He could ask for anything and demon could decided when doctor will die. So now Flug was kind of immortal. Nothing could kill him, deaseses, time, things falling on him or guns aimed at him. He wasn’t living with BH all the time after, he was studying, had parts of life in different centurys, but he wasn’t able to age, so it always took few years. Last thing. Why is he wearing bag? He is scared that someone would recognize him and his real face isn’t really nice to look at. Why? I leave it to my comic.

Dirck van Delen - Elegant company in an interior eating oysters


oil on panel

Private collection

Elegant company on the riverbank. Norbert Goeneutte (French, 1854-1894). Oil on panel.

Goeneutte frequented the Père Lathuille, a cabaret, where he met Manet and was introduced to the artistic circle at the Café de la Nouvelle Athènes. He soon began exhibiting at the Salon. Here, the lady puts aside her reading to enjoy the river or perhaps she is awaiting a suitor, for which she will be the “elegant company.”


Leopard in the 18th Century

Yes, not only The Nanny wears leopard print, back in the 18th Century it was quite a fashion forward and exotic print to wear, especially for men. Breeches, waitcoats, frock coats, dresses, cuffs and lapels were seen in this pattern that feels so modern to us, but that may be not be so.

Apparently the print became popular first with Italian men and then it traveled via the young English men who traveled the Grand Tour to Europe back to England.

It is really funny the way all trends have traveled and still do: the trendy ones were the Italian men, then the early adopters were the macaroni, it moved to the aristocracy and then to the “mainstream”. Just like anything now that begins in the catwalk and it ends in Forever 21. But in a more elegant version XD

Makoto Niijima (Voice Actor: Rina Satō)

  • A third year who attends the same high school (Syujin High School) as the hero. She has a strong sense of responsibility and morals as a student council president, and she is a very serious honor student who doesn’t compromise.
  • Hashino comments that Makoto becomes a focus in the story after the first incident at Syujin High School, where she starts to keep an eye on things. At a glance she doesn’t appear to be someone who would be part of the Phantom Thieves as a student at the academy, given her righteous nature.
  • Johanna (Makoto Niijima’s persona)This persona is based on Pope Joan, a fabled female pope from the Middle Ages in Europe.
    • “Most versions of her story describe her as a talented and learned woman who disguised herself as a man, often at the behest of a lover. In the most common accounts, due to her abilities, she rose through the church hierarchy and was eventually elected pope”

Haru Okumura (Voice Actor: Haruka Tomatsu)

  • A third-year high school student of Syujin High School who is the daughter to the president of a large restaurant company. Elegant but naive to the ways of the world, she tends to observe people.
  • Even though she is very elegant and good at communicating with others, she does not find value in human relations, and avoids having relationships with other people.
  • As the daughter of a company’s president, her life has always been much different from the norm.
  • Hashino comments that Okumura’s relationships with adults have been warped from past experiences.
  • She will have a key role as the story moves forward.
  • Milady (Haru Okumura’s persona)This persona is based on Milady de Winter of the Three Musketeers
    • Her role in the first part is to seduce the English minister, the Duke of Buckingham, who is also the secret lover of Queen Anne of France. Hoping to blackmail the Queen, Richelieu orders Milady to steal two diamonds from a set of matched studs given to Buckingham by the Queen, which were a gift to her from her husband, King Louis XIII. Thwarted by d'Artagnan and the other musketeers, Milady’s opposition of d'Artagnan carries much of the second half of the novel. 

Sakura Futaba (Voice Actor: Aoi Yuki)

  • She has inhuman computing abilities, as a girl genius in programming capability, but she has trouble communicating with others.
  • Her age is that of a first-year student in high school, however she becomes a shut-in after a certain incident after she graduates junior high school.
  • Hashino comments that Sakura changes after encountering the hero. Her situation has special circumstances associated with it, and she has a key role in the story.
  • Alone with the main character, she will behave normally, however when she is face-to-face with several others she tends to wear strange headgear.
  • Necronomicon (Sakura Futaba’s persona)This persona symbolizes an unknown force.

The Chelsea is without doubt Edward Green’s quintessential oxford shoe, embodying the understated elegance that sets the company apart. It is a classic, simple straight-cap oxford and it is precisely this simplicity that gives the Chelsea such versatility. The 82 last, on which the Chelsea is crafted, is a sleek, modern round-toe developed by master shoemaker Tony Gaziano. With its finely bevelled waist and exquisite swans-neck stitching at the throat, the Chelsea is the paragon of straight-cap oxfords.


Is she bored? Is she distressed? Perhaps she’s simply exhausted from a night of dancing.

Jean-Antoine Watteau expressively sketched her silk dress with red and white chalk to create a relaxed, intimate life study.
