In a world of shadows and deception, Vasco is an anomaly. He is loud, flamboyant and witty. Vasco exudes confidence and is rarely shaken, for attention is his drug, and he is not afraid to let others know it. Every moment he spends around others is a moment worthy of a performance, and with his flippant mouth and flute in hand, perform he does. Those who work with him in the Labores Solis often wonder about the darkness that lies behind what must surely be a facetious façade. Within the Labores, Vasco serves an elusive information dealer known only as the Bloodless, and it is in this capacity that he gets involved in Cicero Gavar’s investigations, but Vasco’s intentions for Cicero lie far beyond the mere provision of information.
