Dottore #3 new design 2015

$74

From Bologna - known for the first University. He knows Latin, European languages, Greek, Hebrew, Aramaic, Arabic and more. He is overly well read,has knowledge of everything, talks endlessly, expert on anything, impossible to shut-up, ends-up mixing up all the facts and no one know what he is talking about but he sounds very impressive. He can be a medical Doctor, Lawyer and is almost always the second old man. One theory is the Dottore character was started by students making fun of their professors at the University of Bologna.
