David is a Necromancer; he is also completely deaf. The woman is a Sorceress who ends up turning to the dark arts to bring back her brother, and is prevented in this effort by David who, understanding the delicate nature of ressurection, recognizes the danger in bringing back such a powerful Mage back into the world. In attempting to keep her from raising her brother, he imprisons her. But she is clever, and uses his desire for companionship to trick him into teaching her how to raise and control the dead. She becomes torn between her desire to bring back her brother, and her growing attachment to the silent man, who communicates through a mindless zombie who's connection with David allows him to speak the words the necromancer wants him to.the story isn't even close to finished, but I like to think the storyline is pretty much final. This is a depiction of the scene in which David attempts to convey his romantic feelings, and Leahona...well, you'll just have to wait till I write the story to know what happens next. took about a half hour, I am likley to re-draw it and clean it up, maybe even color it.
