The person you imagine someone to be. (noun or Title, i.e., "Mr.") We all make assumptions about people we know and may even assume that they are angry with us; but when we confront them about it, they have no idea what we're talking about. We've been having a conversation with their "duende." (From the Spanish word for "elf.")
Duende Todd told me that he didn't like SciFi films, so I never asked Todd to go to see one. Weeks ago, he wasn't feeling well when we watched one, so I interpretted that as him not liking SciFi at all. I apparently was only speaking with his duende. He really enjoys SciFi.
