Gideon Forbes

The final one of three characters left to design for our Bayou Arcana story; Gideon Forbes, a Banker!

Matt gave me this description to work with: "Young and ambitious, Forbes is willing to put what principals he has to one side to rise through the ranks and secure himself a future. Think waspish and well turned out with an easy smile, but without any light in his eyes."

His likeness is based on actor Aidan McArdle.

Gideon's outfit is based on this fantastic illustration on the front cover of an 1890's Gentleman's fashion book, the brown check suit really caught me for his character.
Slick, stylish and clean cut, thats how I imagined Forbes to dress. He's incredibly sharp witted and quick with mountains of confidence and the arrogance that comes with it. He's smooth, charismatic and can with a single sentence separate an honest person with their hard earned cash!
