The seeker of salvation and light - Ivan
Little-known Russian eunuchs Ivan, who lived in the 19th century, his biography is described by the Russian explorer, archaeologist, writer Nikolai Yadrintsev in book "Russian community in prison and exile, chapter 10, Seekers of salvation and light" (Русская община в тюрьме и ссылке, глава X. Ищущие спасения и света)

Ivan was a bright, devout and kind soul with incredible angelic beauty and purity. He himself passed through the half of Siberia, lived in severity and asceticism, and when he returned to his native village, he was considered almost a saint. However, in Russia eunuchs (skoptsy) were subjected to persecution, and therefore he and several of his eunuchs-comrades were exiled to prison. However, he was so loved and respected, that even in the exile he enjoyed the care and affection of his fellow eunuchs, who lived with him. His story touched me, so this is the first Russian eunuchs I painted. Also, Nikolai Yadrintsev describes eunuchs without prejudice and offensive stereotypes, which is very rare.

Bagoas at noonday
Pensive Bagoas. What is he thinking about? ... Probably about Alexander.

P. S. Bagoas is the historical person, he is a MALE and he was a Persian eunuch, who become a beloved of Alexander the Great.
