I just realised something. Most magicians are afraid to look ugly. They wear nice suits, comb their hair and try to be as pleasant as possible. While this would be desirable for nice looking men it is kind of awkward for the not so fair looking guys of our guild.
If you cannot dazzle them with beauty, baffle them with character. A good example would be Juan Tamariz. He doesn't look good. But instead of trying to look good, which would be more than a pitiful attempt, he deliberately makes himself look more ugly. And he definitely has character.
Nobody wants to be a loser, but if the role of a loser suit you better than the role of a hero, you better go with this route.
