The faded gentleman

I imagined the father as a learned recluse, enjoying the quiet of life on the island, yet retaining the elegance of a 1920's gentleman, as his clothes would be in keeping with the period of his arrival. Initially he was quite rugged in his demeanour, his frame was broader, his eyes set closer together, his whole face reminiscent of a bird of prey, but I thought this would hinder the already rocky relationship between him and the prim mother, so I narrowed him down, and gave him a gentler face, rather like a mild professor.
