Watching the new Ken Burns series on the Roosevelts.  Okay, who do these sound like?
Young Theodore Roosevelt--fighting nearly fatal asthma, frail, slight, highly intelligent and talking all the time but mind racing so fast his words sometimes tumbled over themselves.
His younger brother Elliott Roosevelt--strong, athletic, handsome, most likely to succeed.  Often during their childhood protected Theodore.

The descriptions just leaped out at me as describing Miles and Ivan.
