OCCULT NOIR. MIAMI SLEAZE. Sebastian Harlow is the Black Flamingo, a flamboyant and narcissistic thief who gets his kicks stealing mystic artifacts from the wealthy and corrupt of Miami’s occult underground.

The protagonist is nonbinary and uses he/him pronouns. There is a supporting character who is visually coded as Black, and another supporting character who is a golem containing the spirit of a man who was Jewish and queer. There are some depictions of blood, and multiple instances of unclothed bodies, sometimes in a sexual context.
