Varushka Léontine Stasyowna
The Toreador elder with both Russian and French Roots is not only the companion of Antonio but the very heart of the circus. She is mostly in charge of the performances, timetables, decoration, music, serves as a judge to quarrels inside the circus and promotes team spirit and solidarity. She often addresses the other members as her children and has a patronizing but genuinely caring personality behind her often dramatic and arrogant behavior. Sometimes she steps in for a dance act but most of the time she organizes the processes behind the curtain. She is strict but forgiving.
