Aloysius Xingu Leng Pendergast

Head Sculpt:
Norman Light (2.0)
RGM-03 (for now)
  • Face-up artist(s):
    Date of acquisition:
    Head-5/4/16 Body-6/5/16
    Both bought new, I'm the only owner.
    Reason for choice:
    Norman was actually bought to be the extra head for my Norman Dark (Joker), but I didn't do the faceup to my liking, so I'd wiped it. The body was bought as a fullset K B, which I'd always intended to split up - the K head is the extra head of my K/Dollmore Model hybrid. On a whim I decided to make Norman into Pendergast as he's a favorite book character of mine for years now.
    Best Points:
    The body is gorgeous and poses amazingly well for something so big. Norman is a great sculpt and I was very happy to find a permanent use for him.
    Worst Points:
    Ringdoll makes their heads to fit a variety of their bodies, and I think this may be the reason the head has a jerky sort of movement. It wants to snap down a lot.

    He's a very in-between size. Too tall for SID, too slim for EID, too big for pretty much everything else. Clothing is hard to find, so I'll be switching the head to another body when I am able to order (Dollstown 17yr is the plan). Because I do love the body, I'll be getting it another head.
  • Eyes:
    Oscar Doll Eyes Small blue stars 10mm
    White fur - tho technically, it's not a wig. :O
    Favourite colours:
    Fashion style(s):
    Hand tailored black suits.
    Key fashion accessory:
    a customized .45 Caliber Les Baer Government Model M1911 pistol
    Pendergast religiously dresses in a black, hand-tailored suit made of a special blend of wool made only in the 1950s, thus he is often described as looking like an undertaker. :D

    Yes, I quoted Wikipedia
  • Name story:
    He's named after a book character. I had nothing to do with it.

    Character gender:
    Offsite roleplay:
    This doll's character is not available for offsite roleplay.

    Aloysius Xingu Leng Pendergast is a fictional character appearing in novels by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child. He first appeared as a supporting character in their first novel, Relic, and in its sequel Reliquary, before assuming the protagonist role in The Cabinet of Curiosities.

    Aloysius Xingu Leng Pendergast was born circa 1960 and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana. Pendergast retains his Southern manners and mellifluous Deep Southern accent. He studied Anthropology at Harvard University(graduating summa cum laude) and received a dual Doctor of Philosophy degree in Classics and Philosophy from Baliol College, part of Oxford University in England .

    Pendergast once served with the U.S. Special Forces. Most of his military records are classified and unknown.

    A number of years before the series began, Pendergast was married to Helen Esterhazy Pendergast. She was presumed killed in a hunting accident while in Africa (mauled by a lion), but reappears in the so-called Helen Trilogy.

    Pendergast is generally described as being stoically aloof and eccentric, though his ineffable politeness and unerring intellect imbue him with an irresistible charm or enigmatic sense of danger if the occasion should call for it. Well-learned in many subjects, he converses easily with doctors, scientists, intellectuals, vagabonds, highly specialized masters of specific disciplines, and people of a wide variety of language and culture alike. He is a master of psychological manipulation, disguise, and improvisation.

    Pendergast appreciates the finer things in life, including expensive cuisine and wines. Foods and drinks he enjoys include Château Pétrus wine, antipasto, green tea of only the purest and most spiritual kind, gelato, and steak tartare. He has a great distaste for opera. His interests encompass a wide variety of vastly differing walks of life, yet all focus on the enlightenment of the human mind, body, and soul. He spent a year in Tibet studying the deep meditative art of Chongg Ran, taught to him by the monks of the Gsalrig Chongg monastery.

    Pendergast is polyglot, demonstrating mastery of French, Italian, Latin, Greek, Portuguese and Cantonese, and appears semi-fluent in Mandarin. He also has some knowledge of Japanese.
