This is a Polterra, he's a creature from my fantacy story titled 'Nevermore'. The poltarra are immortal creature's that will live on and on as long as they are content, most often Polterra will only die after loseing one who was very close to them, then they pine away and die of sadness. This Poterra is still young at a few hundred years old. he has seen most all of his race hunted to extinction by men, for the price of their fur and bones. He now finds contentment in misery and affliction, He spent countless years as a slave and was raised as such by vile, loveless men, He was taught to kill at a young age by his master,, and was passed down from father to son as a heirloom slave, or sold for coin and lost to other men in gambling, but his taks changed little from master to master, violence and death were his trademark. until at last -and well over due- he slaughtered his final master along with the wretched mans entire family, setting the house a blaze and killing them as they burned. Then he set out to find what was left of his kind, but with each year that passed, and still no sign, he slowly began his fall into deeper madness, then one village at a time, takes is vengence on humanity, his goal is to drive them into extinction as they have done to his kind. But it's an imossable task, there are just too many. Although, in time he finds just the weakness he is looking for, mans willingness to war, and how easly they can be set against each other. By his reconing, his hand alone he has killed tens of thousands over the last few hundered years, but in his recent scheming and misdeeds, has killed tens of tens of thousands in only a few days... perhaps his goal is within reach after all. Today his kills a young prince, and carries his body to hang from the walls of a neighboring city gate. "It must be WAR!" they'll cry, then he will sit on a hill side with a light snack, and giggle as he watches the the great play unfold for his sick ammusement.
This Creature is no the oldest Charicter i've been drawing, but it ihas been the longest one in development. id guess I started drwing this beast back as far as 1995. it looked more like ALIEN and had blue skin, walked on all fours and was huge. a shot time later It was walking on two legs. A few years after that I shrunk it down to just a few feet tall, turned it green and added ears later fur. Then minor modifications to the head since then (I cant decide on it.) This is the final product so far. but who knows where it'll go from here.
