Yes, it is him: the unbelievable, ingenious and extremely powerful elven archmage Thyras!
(That's at least how a friend whose Earthdawn character this is would express it... I'd rather say 'the not-much-stronger than a windling, extremely fast to kill and somewhat overly self-confident elf I'm travelling with' .)...and that's why he only got a mini krillra (an Earthdawn monster, normally some times bigger), not a grown up one! (Again joking: At the beginning this should not become much more than another character illustration - but then I wanted to make a whole picture of it. Thus, I added the monster (hey, it's cute, isn't it?) and some really detailed (at least for my doing so far) and long-taking background.)(This is one of my older works I still like.)(DIN A5, watercolors, 2003)
