Alagadda Idea since it’s taking over my life 1:
Mirth, Odious, Diligent, and Anguish are all base after commedia dell'arte characters
Mirth is Arlecchino, the stereotype for fools, clowns, and pantomimes, and has an energetic personality. He’s stupid and greedy, but his acrobatics are 😤👌💞💝
Odious is Arlecchino’s older brother, Brighella who is a very cynical and sarcastic character that will “sell his sister” for extra gold. He is also a cunning liar and will get hot-headed if something doesn’t go his way.
Diligent is Pantalone, an older wealthy man who meddle in the affairs of others and is usually the father of the innamorati (the lovers). He is also described as petty, and will never forget or forgive even the smallest things.
Anguish (or SCP 035) is Pierrot, who is a sad clown who always has his love, Columbina, breaks his heart, and runs away with Harlequin (Arlecchino). If that’s the case, Anguish got SCP 049 stolen from him by Mirth-
