It needs to be transferred/merged with the historical profile,because this is not the Micheletto of the show.

Of all the characters in The Borgias Michelotto is one of the most enigmatic and intriguing. Tracing him historically is like searching for a distant shadow and this is probably by choices he made himself at the time, however he is interesting enough to demand further interest and possibly a TV series not viewed from the angle of The Great and The seemingly good but perhaps through they eyes of Cesare's fixer. Was he bad? was he good? probably a mixture of both........

I really like his character as well. I do wonder what is with the slouching. It's like he is slinking around. Could be to make him seem sneaky and covert. I also wonder if Michelotto is a sadomasochist. He had sex with and then killed the chambermaid; took advantage of her or gets off on murder?
