Who is Mister Mo?

posted by Lisa Knight

Mister Mo is a fictional character in the Love Amongst Strangers books. He is the bodyguard of Occult detective Ayesha Swanson. Recently I came to learn that there was a real life inspiration behind the character and I was lucky enough to speak to him on the Artifice Comics Facebook page

THE LOOK

“That outfit in his introduction scene was a collection of what I like to wear back in Plymouth about 5-6 years ago where I met Jacob”

Dressed in a unique combination of tasselled leather jacket, dark green combat trousers and seaside flip-flops, Mister Mo was something of an enigma when it came to his dress sense. Behind the rounded horizon of his John Lennon sunglasses lay eyes possessed of earnest, if not misunderstood honesty

Mister Mo

Do you still dress that way?

“The biker jacket is gone because I left it with a teenager that needed the confidence to face teen life but the combat and the glasses I still have”

THE TALK

“I heard the character is loved by a lot of people in his stories and I wasn’t aware of my fictional self until recently. But judging by what I’ve read Jacob has captured my speech pattern perfectly during casual conversation. I tend to use bud, dude a lot”

MO-ISM’S

“That, Mister Mo, is what you get for your thinking with your wang.” “True, bud, true,” he agreed, “but wang is Mandarin for emperor. I just can’t argue with that.”

“Stay back, little bud,” he murmured, reaching up to remove his glasses with the other hand, “it wouldn’t do my reputation any good to let a lady get hurt, yeah?”

“Not a hospital, little bud,” he whispered, “I can’t stand the food there.”
