Here we have Lapis (in the collar) and his new Master (Anrin or Imriss, you decide!). The story goes that Lapis was killed due to a series of events that his little brother (Angel, my Angst!Boy) set into motion. Half a universe away from home, his body ended up and was found by Anrin/Imriss - a being who was trying to find the balance between scientific resurrection and religious rebirth. After many failed attempts and much sticking-up of Lapis, the process worked - combining Lapis' soul with his body once more. And Lapis is so grateful for being alive again that he would do anything for his Master for he loves him, in a way he did not expect. OK. Backstory over! This image is more symbolic of the relationship between the two - Lapis' eyes are not focused; still reeling from rebirth, and Lapis bears wounds that he did not have before finding Anrin/Imriss. However 'Master' is unconcerned except when it comes to keeping Lapis in line and keeping him loyal - using whatever means he can.
