Kalyan's Marks

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

This is Kalyan, my character from the RPG-site Chikara no Shima, when he's grown up. He's still not old, he's in his forties, but he's already acting like a sulky old man. He never laughs or smiles, when somebody comes and tries to be kind to hime he just stares sternly at the newcomer, with a "what are you looking at" expression. And sometimes he just ignores everybody who tries to talk to him. He don't have any friends, he just don't trust people any longer. He's not so healthy. Surviving the crasch and burns was hard, it took him months to regain his health. Even now, he has to use a stick when he walks. His shoulders, neck and back are crooked, and sometimes he can't move without screaming in pain. When he occasionally get's into a fight, his opponent won't be slow to notice that. They won't be late to take advantage of an ol' cripple, mostly by hitting him on the back, or stealing his stick, or, sometimes, stealing his stick and hitting him on the back with it. (Trust me, it happens.) And the burns on his face, ear, shoulders, neck and back still aches and needs expensive lotions. He would, though, gladly suffer these pains and much, much more if he could get what his heart's desire: two healthy wings. The wings got so badly injured that they had to amputate the right one, and the left wing is as crooked and sloping as his occasional smile. He will never be able to fly again, and that, my dear friends, is the reason to his sorrow and angst. He can't stand when people ask about his wings or talk about flying. But it's not a mystery why he is so harsh and bitter. Made 2007, Black ink and markers
