Alcazar is a very odd and moody character, I have noticed. He looks different in every book (tall and stocky with a round nose in Broken Ear, thin with a large stubble ammount in Seven Crystal Balls, etc.)

Also, Alcazar speaks in a Spanish accent only in The Red Sea Sharks.

I've been wondering this, too: What is Alcazar's first name?

And, in Tintin Et Moi, someone says that Peggy has some sort of position in the Ku Klux Klan or something like that.

It all leads to Alcazar being a mysterious character with a possibly shady past.

Herge was inspired to draw Peggy from sketches of a secretary for a Klu Klux Klan spokesman, on a T.V programme he was watching. He must have thought the Secretary had the right look for Peggy's character.
