My second muse has identified himself: Haldir S. Gailord, 18th-century gentleman/Elf, gambler, adventurer extraordinaire! A cross between Haldir of Lorien ('Lord of the Rings'), my cat Spook, and Gaylord Mitty, riverboat gambler (if you've ever seen 'The Secret Life of Walter Mitty', you know who I mean!). With perhaps the faintest hint of Dorian Gray. *happy sigh* It even looks like Haldir! Sort of. A little.
