They’re united in petty kleptomania and poor risk-assessment abilities. She’s a game old bird with a bosom-swing that could concuss any bystanders within two feet, and he’s a cheeky goodfornothin’ with a well-sculpted caboose and a bottomless appetite for bad whisky and worse conversation. For everyone’s safety, PLEASE keep them well clear of the bar.

I’ve still got a few sketches left to go, but I couldn’t in good faith forget to draw the magnificent Pixie Perizene, whom I have come to regard with deep and unshakeable adoration. If I ever write a character with half the cheeky charm of Tanglefoot’s gloriously bizarre creations, I will consider my job well done. 

I think the perfect dance song for these two is “I Don’t Know”, as sung by the Blues Brothers and written by Brook Benton and Bobby Steven.

“I said, BABY!

You know when you bend over, I see every bit of Christmas, and when you bend back I’m lookin’ right into the new year.

She said, Honey, you know i gave up cigarettes for my new years’ resolution, but i didn’t give up sa-MOKIN’!

I said, WOMAN! You gonna walk a mile for a Camel, or are you gonna make like Mr Chesterfield and SATISFY?

She said, that all depends on what you’re packin’ - regular? Or King-Size…”

Aleksandra Molokova – Gina Dirawi

Short Character Bio: Aleksandra Molokova grew up in Leningrad (today’s St Petersburg) in a communal apartment housing four families.

She didn’t perform very well in school but due to her mother’s persistence she both managed and was allowed to attend Leningrad State University. On her father’s insistence she studied Russian and political science, he wished for her to find a husband with a future in the Party. During her last semester at the university she was recruited to the KGB which needed a woman with her looks for an assignment in the Moldavian SSR. After a couple of years in the Moldavian SSR she was pulled out after being made by an American agent she knew under the codename Gauthier.

Molokova relocated to Moscow where she worked for the recruitment office for a while before becoming a handler. Being assigned Anna Sergievskaya felt like a slap in the face because she was a) a woman and b) without any real political power. Lolling about in chess halls, making sure Sergievskaya (and her goddamn husband for that matter!) didn’t cause political scandal wasn’t what she had signed up for.

The more Sergievskaya’s popularity (and by that her importance to the Party) grew, the more satisfied Molokova became with her position. She is however very aware that her own good grace inside both the Party and the KGB is highly dependent on Sergievskaya’s public appearance and success. As long as they are inside the Soviet Union it’s all right, but it is with great concerns Molokova prepares the delegation for the trip to the West.

Voice Samples: 1, 2, 3 (<– My favourite TV moment ever.)

(Yes, I’m pretty sure that guy is her right-hand man.)

He may be able to pasa doble but Niko certainly can’t hold a candle to Edgar for charm and schmooze. He can try and make up for it with flagrant shirtlessness, but he’s not fooling anyone. Put your vest back on, mister, before someone comes up behind you and snaps your suspenders. 

Edgar borrowed with kind permission from the gorgeous Prawnlegs, who drew this glorious picture of Niko.

There’s been an attack in a highschool in Barcelona

A 13 year old boy, a student in the highschool Joan Fuster, entered with a crossbow and a dagger or machete (depending on different accounts) and proceeded to attack his teacher and some other students. A substitute teacher who was in a nearby class went to see what was wrong after hearing the victims’ screams and was shot and killed by the student withe crossbow.

Apparently, the murderer had a list of people in the school he wanted to kill, both students and teachers included. As he is 13, and in accordance with Spanish law, he cannot be accused or judged for the crime. He will not spend a day in prison or any juvenile centre, a person capable of writing a hitlist, getting a crossbow and other weapons (he was supposedly found preparing a Molokov cocktail after the attacks) and killing people, but he will face no legal or penal consequences because he is not 14 yet.

Attacks of this kind are extremely rare here, so this has come as a big shock. 

RIP to the teacher that was killed for trying to help others and let’s hope the injured victims are back to health soon. 

Some articles about the case in Spanish here, here and here.
