Colin Paturel in the work by Anne Golon
(p. 277) Slowly a form emerged - a slave chained hand and foot. (…) From the grandstand he appeared to be a man of unusual height and strength. The shirt and the short drawers he wore revealed his heavily muscled arms and legs, and his broad hairy chest on which shone a religious medal. Out of his light coloured, matted hair and beard peeped skyblue eyes. Closer to, his Viking's mop of hair and his beard would have revealed a few grey streaks, for he was at least forty years old and had been a slave for a dozen years.
(p. 282) "I like you Normands," said Mulai Ismail warmly. "I shall order the pirates to cruise the coasts of Normandy from Honfleur to Le Havre and bring me back vast numbers of them. There is only one thing about you I do not like, Colin Paturel. You are too big. You are taller than I, and that is something I cannot endure." "There are several means by which you can correct that, my lord. You could cut off my head, or you could ask me to sit beside you. Then you would be taller than I, what with your turban."
GOLON, Sergeanne. Angélique and the Sultan. London: Pan Books, 1963.

Colin Paturel in the work by Anne Golon
(p. 300) The Norman was always laden with chains, and often his arms and his back were covered with bleeding wounds from the lashings and beatings his boldness brought upon him. These never prevented him, however, from loading heavy sacks of mortar on his herculean back and climbing up the ladders to the very top of the scaffolding in spite of the heavy fetters that encumbered his ankles. He took care of the weak, and no one dared say anything to him.
(p. 395 - 396) The Norman was asleep, his slow, regular breathing heaving his broad, hairy chest beneath the open burnous. No, he could not be sick. His colour was good, and the serenity of his closed lips and his relaxed position were those of a man in god health merely restoring his strength after heavy labour. As she looked at him lying there under the cedars she tought of Adam, there was so much primitive perfection in his huge, vigorous body, and he was such a simple man - a wandering hunter, a law-giver, the shepherd of his flock.
