Sinful Saturday Views - Tybalt from the October Daye Series by Seanan McGuire

This is a new weekly post hosted by me and Incident over at Sordid Fantasy. We will list some of our favorite fictional men along with why we love/lust them. Pictures will also be included.


This week's pick is Tybalt from the October Daye Series by Seanan McGuire. Tybalt is the local King of the Court of Cats of the Cait Sidhe. Toby describes him as having the "sort of sleek, muscled build that only comes from a few specific types of exercise programs." Though Toby was referring to the exercise to keep Tybalt's throne, I definitely came up with a few others. To learn more about this great series, you can see my  reviews of Rosemary and Rue and A Local Habitation. So far the only interactions of our heroine, Toby, with Tybalt have been mostly antagonistic and snarky, but who doesn't love a man who is able to dole out the sarcasm. 
Some favorite Tybalt quotes: 

“I’m a cat. We aren’t required to make sense.” - from ALH

"You were sleeping so peacefully that I was loath to wake you. Duke Torquill, after demanding to know what I was doing in your apartment, has requested that I inform you of his intent to visit after ‘tending to some business at the Queen’s Court.’ I recommend wearing something clinging, as that may distract him from whatever he wishes to lecture you about this time. Hopefully, it’s your manners. You are truly endearing when you sleep. I attribute this to the exotic nature of seeing you in a state of silence."- A note from Tybalt to Toby from ALH

For how I see Tybalt, James McAvoy comes to mind so I included some pics.

So have you read the October Daye Series? What do you think of my pick for Tybalt?

I've been stuck on Sean Maher from Firefly as Tybalt since someone mentioned it at one point. Your pick is better.

I think you're got something with your comparison of Tybalt to James McAvoy. That's a good mental picture and it matches mine pretty darn closely. What a fun idea - I love this post.

Heather (DarklyReading) said...

@Rebecca - thanks..sometimes when I see a pic of actor/model I just think that he's perfect for one of my fav characters..and it's fun to do this post too :)

Quick update: the newly released "An Artificial Night" mentions Tybalt in red leather pants.

Amy Rene said...

oooh! He's absolutely perfect for Tybalt!! I hadnt really thought about him as Tybalt before, but he would be perfect in the looks department.
