I've had this character for years, simmering on the back burner. I've been playing him quite a bit lately, and I'm amused at how the character is shaping up. I've always known what kind of a character he was, and I've played him a few times here and there... But I don't tend to get a good feel for a character until I've been at him consistently for a few months.
As I've grown into the character, hes gotten louder and louder, to the point of being loud enough that you can hear him all the way on the other side of the building at most games, and constantly talking shit about people, or causing trouble for somebody. It's a fresh thing to have essentially zero responsibilities at game, and play a shit talking, trouble making, shenanigans causing Assamite with no political machinations.
Unlike Norton, who is purposely apolitical, Colin just doesn't much care. I'm sure at some point he'll wind up getting involved in the political stuff, but mostly cause hes just going along for the ride, and not because hes a power-hungry maniac like Alejandro.
Plus, hes friggin' hilarious.
Colin to Antonio Salerno: "History shows us that since the dawn of time, Milwaukee has always had a Child of Haqim running around, causing trouble for whoever the prince was, and generally making a mess of things. Now you're all grown up and civilized, runnin' the show as Prince, right? Well, lucky for you, I realize how important having a trouble maker running around is to this Domain. And luckily for you, I can be that guy!"
Also, whoever thought it was a good idea to give me magic of all fucking things was a fool. A FOOL I SAY! *cackle*
