    "the famous hero of the Corsican vendetta, the handsome Theodore Calvi, known as Madeleine..with light hair and hollow, dull blue eyes...and a twitching of the muscles peculiar to Corsicans, denoting that excessive irritability which makes them so prompt to kill in any sudden squabble...imprisoned for life at eighteen for eleven murders, (and) thanks to the influential interference paid for with vast sums, had been made the fellow convict of Jacques Collin."-Scenes from a Courtesan's Life, Honoré de Balzac
