A young bird-person named Petrel takes flight. He has a simple mind but a free spirit and lives by a loose philosophy, 'Life is about the sting of alpine air in your lungs and the force of the wind in your hair. So long as you're off the ground, everything in the world feels alright.' The Snow Petrel is a small, pure white bird that resides only in Antartica. It is a magnificent high-altitude and long-distance flyer, and has an astonding resistance to sub-zero cold. An appropriate namesake for this young, restless aviator, don't you think? Oh, and by the way, the nondescipt substance beneath him is supposed to be water, and no, those aren't his eyes, he's wearing googles. XP The Japanese characters in the corner translate to 'White Dragon', which is my usual online screen name. Mechanical pencil, posted 12/20/06.
