Characters from my novel, 'Legion'.
Used different refs for Castellan and Gellak, changed their features, and changed the room decor and contents on the table.
I don't like the title. Suggestions?
I need a scanner. Either the table gets skewered or the window wall does. Taking photos of straight lines is a pain.
Not sure about the colour scheme, but Gellak is a peasant.
'Maajon' or 'free folk' is what the Quilhiril Collective calls ordinary citizens like him, but he's a low status male from a low-status mind-community with no particular talents or skills. Once a spaceport immigration officer who kept getting into trouble for delaying flights, now a foot soldier conscripted to fight for a jihad he doesn't believe in. He's a wannabe priest who failed the entrance exams four times, a general disgrace with 'sorcerer' stamped on his tail. A seer who nobody listens to, except the slave Castellan.
He had prevented Castellan from escaping years before, but in so doing, may have saved his planet.
Now Castellan is a slave no longer, and he wants Gellak at his side, but Gellak just wants to sleep right now.
I decided to dress Castellan in a 1930's style suit, which were more feminine, but Quilhiril don't wear ties or buttons. Castellan had a fine time with them when he was a refugee on Earth.
He'd picked up smoking there, though.
