Before the Marquis, there was the Misere~ who appears in both Les Preludes and the fourth chapter of "Danse Macabre" (in the Marquis:Inferno collection). Even though his appearance is brief in the story, I wanted him as fully realized as the other main characters. His costume was based on plague doctors of the 14th century with some redesigns to make him unique and fit him within the world of the Marquis. Along with the toned model sheet reprinted in the Inferno sketchbook, I also did this finished drawing back in 1999 to get a feel for the character.
