| Spoilers: Crimson Death
This article or section contains spoilers for 2016 novel Crimson Death.
When we first hear the name Giacomo in Dead Ice it is used for a few times in reference to one of the two Harlequin werelions Anita and Jean-Claude acquired at the same time (presumably 'Thing one' and 'Thing two' from Hit List, the second one being Magda), but unless there are two Harlequin with the same name that name was later transferred to Magda's master. That Giacomo is a master vampire centuries older than Jean-Claude, and one we meet for the first time in Crimson Death. This article assumes that the latter naming is considered canonically more weighty and 'Thing one' will eventually get a new name.
Giacomo is all-around big like an old-time refrigerator. His shoulders are a match or a near match to Nicky's, and he's about or over six feet tall. He doesn't look muscled thanks to the extra layer of flesh, but on that count appearances are deceiving, and he matches Nicky well on friendly weight lifting competitions.
Giacomo's face is almost perfectly round, and his smile is infectious. His eyes are naturally dark brown, but the right one has been bisected by a scar that curves through his eyebrow and onto his cheek, and has turned into a pale milky blue. He can still see out of the eye, though, even if not as well as before. Like many Harlequin and unlike most old vampires, his face is expressive like human's.
History within series Edit
Giacomo is not directly mentioned in this book, but if Magda is the werelion that Anita dubbed as 'Thing two' for lack of better name, he may have been around as well.
The Giacomo mentioned in this book is likely the werelion Anita dubbed as 'Thing one', and Magda's master isn't mentioned at all, but we might presume that he has joined Anita and Jean-Claude's ranks around the same time as Magda did.
In this book we finally meet the Giacomo who is Magda's master. He is old-fashioned and respectful enough to kneel before Jean-Claude, and in her master's presence Magda follows his lead as well. Giacamo and Magda aren't lovers, but they are fellow warriors who respect each other, and possibly even best friends. Anita classifies their relationship as something between the ones she has with Edward and Zerbrowski, which is very different from many other master-animal pairs within the Harlequin.
Giacomo shares with Cynric, Anita, and co. some knowledge about ancient clan tigers, particularly blue ones, and connects the short-lived local earthquake to Cynric coming into his powers. Anita doesn't like how Giacomo looks at Cynric when talking about how he is as pure blooded as Fortune despite everyone, Giacomo included, thinking that the blue bloodline had been hunted down and killed beyond her. Giacomo and Magda had heard rumors of clan tigers within the US, but they weren't the ones sent to investigate.
Giacomo and Magda are two of the guards that join Anita to her trip to Ireland. He spends much of that trip carried around by Magda in a sun-proof bag.
