Here is another set of characters for my intended "Wind in the Willows" comic project!
Roscoe DeWeasel is "the Weasel Chief" who leads a group of weasels, ferrets and stoats to take over Toad's mansion while the toad is away in prison. I wanted him to have kind've a gangster look, though I wasn't entirely sure if I wanted that at all. I did want him to look both oily and sophisticated, but again, I'm open to ideas and/or suggestions about how the characters should look.
Portly Otter is Ottar's son. In the original book, Portly is known to wander off on occasion, but he only gets one scene. In my comic, I plan on him being a much more prominent and important character. After reading the book, I realized that Otter's wife was never mentioned, so I decided to have it so that Ottar is a widower, with his only family being Portly. Both father and son are very close, and their relationship plays a much bigger part in my comic.
Tommy and Billy Pintics are the sons of Abigail Pintics, and they are also based off the two hedgehog brothers who turn up at Badger's domain during the winter. They also will be playing a much bigger part, as their mother is a widow and they get to hang around Toad's mansion whenever they don't have to be in school. In the original book, only one of the hedgehog brothers was named (Billy, the younger one), but I wanted both of them to have names. Fortunately, as I read the original book and came upon the scene with the choir-mice, two names for the young mice were mentioned: "Bill" and "Tommy." So I decided to name the older brother Tommy, since that was a name that appeared in the book anyhow.
Milo DeWeasel is the nephew of Roscoe DeWeasel, and is based off of the little weasel who came up to Toad's house towards the end of the book, asking if he could be of any service. Milo starts off as a "snot-nosed brat" in my comic, and he is doted upon by his uncle (in the book, the weasels gathered to celebrate the Chief Weasel's birthday, but in my comic I'm going to have it be Milo's birthday). But, in the end, just like the others, Milo ends up turning over a new leaf.
