Development: Robért Chandler

Robért Chandler (who debuted here: http://eternalknights.thecomicseries.com/comics/22) started out as "Bob", Kathryn's white blond secretary. I thought it would be hilarious to give him a generic name and no personality. Seriously.

Sweater. Wow. I eventually decided to give him some color - literally and figuratively. I decided I wanted him to be black (after seeing Hidalgo, I think), but then I wasn't sure I could pull it off. He just came across as overly masculine, which was wrong for the character. I tried a white version, and he just looked kind of generic again.

Then I stumbled across a John Cassady design of a British doctor. I tried to rip it off completely while adding some non-white ethnicity to it, but the results were questionable at first. I finally decided I wanted him to be white, Indian, and black, and I used an Indian actor for general reference. The final version is on the bottom right.
