More mucking around with expression sheets—have half a dozen Paolos, on the house. For the sake of accuracy, I’d like to add terror, abject terror and something involving yelling but I don’t have time tonight.
Paolo is a very nice, very weird young man who is earnestly trying to be a professional art thief but on the criminality scale rates ‘petty scoundrel’ at best. He’d like to be a suave, debonaire sort of thief, but for now is just nervous and sweaty. Practice makes perfect!
He’s a terrible burglar and an appalling pickpocket, but a talented forger. He’s especially good at aping paintings in the rococo style, and will happily tell you alllll about it. Prior to working for Charlie and Emile he worked a short stint restoring antique furniture for a shop that was most likely a mafia-owned front for money laundering. He doesn’t know anything about that (oblivious, really), but he is very good at reupholstering chairs.
