This is Lohsen. He was raised in a constrictive environment designed to train him to be a spell-casting weapon. He feared punishment from his instructors, and often promised to them that he'd be good.
Lohsen is a young elf boy, quite androgynous at this point in his life. He's an albino. I did a lot of research into albinism, trying to get it 'right,' especially during the writing and constructing of his story. If you are an albino or you have a friend that lacks melanin pigmentation, please feel free to email me about your experiences. All the information I have is from textbooks and the like, so some real-world feedback would be great.
