    • Sebastian Verlac will be from London Institute, while his book counterpart was from Paris.
    • The character will have a British accent.
    • The writers put their own spin on the character.

Major spoilers under the cut!
  • It has been implied and theorized that he took the Sword and was the hooded figure seen walking away with it at the end of By the Light of Dawn.[6][7][8]
  • Sebastian may have a new backstory on the show.[9][10]
    • He may have grown up in Hell, where he was tortured by a demon. His skin was torn off layer by layer, among other terrible things done to him.
    • Sebastian's character has been described as "someone who can be compassionate, and who may seem like a decent person on the surface. (...) That kind of dramatic resonance never goes away from a person, no matter how you shellac it."[11]
