Tobias Capwell in his custom made armour, based on an effigy from about the 1450s. It is a beautifully tailored second skin designed to protect him while jousting or (with a different helmet) in foot combat.
Properly made armour does not restrict movement, armour like this actually has a greater range of movement than the human inside it. 

For those of you unfamiliar with Tobias, he is a big name on the jousting international scene.

"Don’t call out at me in posh voices like that! Do you want to give me a heart attack?"

"This is my normal voice," Christopher said coldly.

This was a request from  minutia-r from months ago of young Jason and Christopher playing pranks

My head canon is that Jason is always more cautious than Christopher (for fear of getting fired) and as a result it’s always Christopher who gets caught/blamed (even though he insists that they wouldn’t dare fire Jason after the events in The Lives of Christopher Chant).

Just a reminder that Christopher “if I have a fault it’s being too clever” Chant, the most powerful enchanter in the multiverse, once lost a life by tripping over a cat and falling down a flight of stairs.

I suppose this isn’t done yet but I really need a break from it. 

Our first assignment in drawing was to take 10 hours drawing whatever we wanted. I’d already started this drawing actually, but it took me far longer than 10 hours to finish. It’s a shame but I really don’t have much practice drawing dark skinned people…just because they’re harder to color so I used to avoid doing it -_-“

That being said, I just realized what DWJ meant when she said his hair looked like it would be painful to brush. I thought it meant he had sharp looking hair…but they’re really tight ringlets…which made me realize that he probably looks black…GODDAMNIT CHRISTOPHER HAD YOU NEVER SEEN A BLACK PERSON BEFORE????

CHRESTOMANCI SPOILERS

Tacroy is one of my favorite characters in this series. I love his and Christopher’s relationship. The image of Tacroy’s interrogation is so heartbreaking, with Tacroy lying about everything that has to do with Christopher and deliberately scanning the group to show he has no interest in him. And Christopher putting on his vague face while he’s actually freaking out and about to throw up. Actually, the mermaid thing freaked me out too…I mean, my stomach did the same flop that Christopher’s did (and I haven’t eaten fish since). 

I find the concept of one’s soul being another’s possession really compelling…especially to the Dright who’s point is to belittle and overpower his people. Which is another reason Tacroy’s loyalty to Christopher means so much. Tacroy watches him die multiple times and each time Christopher comes running back, completely oblivious that he’s being taken advantage of. And he thought that Christopher was just going to leave him with the Dright! AAAA when he gets his soul back:

"Now I really am your man! Tacroy said. He was laughing in a way that was rather like sobbing." OW MY HEART. I’m a little disappointed that Tacroy is working with DeWitt later and not Christopher, all things considered. 

Also, I love how you can tell how scared Tacroy is by the kind of coffee he’s described as :D And when they say that Gabriel is in series 11, "He was the color of milk with a dash of coffee in it," and Christopher is probably thinking “WHAT? WHAT’S GOING ON?”
