How do you describe the physical appearance of Prince Prospero?I'm curious because in our short story in class, there's no description. I haven't watched the movie. Can you help me?

When considering Prospero's appearance, I consider this quote:

"for the prince was a bold and robust man"

This suggests to me a man of good physical condition.  He rushes through the rooms of the house after the intruder comes, with dagger in hand.  This also supports good physical condition. 

I picture a man of average height, broad shouldered and straight backed.
