No but have you ever thought about how fascinating Count Riario is to Nico?
He’s not only the perfect anti-hero, he also represents the perfect Machiavellian man. Dark, attractive and repulsive at the same time, sharp, cunning, unemotional but passionate about his ideas and ideals. He refuses to feel cause this makes him feel weak. And there’s no place for feelings in a corrupted world where money and power are the only means to survive.
