Portrait of a Character – Cyril Morgan Yarin
I needed for Mack MacKenzie to have an attorney to help with the technical issues of owning and running a barnstorming sports team. The idea of marrying the future Boris Yarin and the past Cyril Morgan was one I could not pass up.
Yarin is played by actor Michael Caine.
I love this actor’s accent, his pleasantness, and that he seems to be an intelligent person. I can absolutely see him playing Dana MacKenzie’s lawyer.
Intelligent, down to earth and highly skilled, Cyril is a cross between the older Cyril and Boris. That is, he is kindly like the elder Cyril but also, maybe just a little, nervous like Boris.
Cyril has no known relationships.
There are no impediments to his existence in the Mirror.
Just like any other intelligent person, he would be ruthless and would probably rise up in the ranks pretty quickly. He could even, potentially, be a lower or even mid-level politician on the other side of the pond.
“All right. Now, you and I have full attorney-client confidentiality. I am not going to go to the authorities if you tell me something illegal is afoot, unless you or anyone else is in relatively immediate physical peril…. So if your engineer finds something that is, shall we say, off the grid, you can tell me. In fact, I would prefer it if you did, so I’d have an idea of what to expect.”
Misty, like every other team owner, needs a lawyer to handle the messy business of player contracts. For her, an ex-convict with a ship that barely skirts legality at times, the need is even greater, and Cyril fits the bill rather neatly.
