Scaramouche (literally “little skirmisher”) is a character of the Italian Commedia Dell’Arte. The role combined characteristics of the Zanni (servant) and the Captino.
Another misfit, who also gets into trouble with the Secret Police, Scaramouche meets Galileo in hospital and they run away together. Her sharp wit keeps Galileo (or Gazza as she names him) on his toes.
What would Scaramouche say?
I make my own fashion statements
I ain’t no Ga Ga girl
I’d rather be a sad loner than a perky skank
Don’t call me baby!
Friends? I gave up on those when I reached ten million
The ‘chick’? What am I now, a party bucket of KFC?
