=============== Once, triumphant. A sunrises' soft caress lauded to its Brightest Son. Champion. Ever Vigilant. Ever for Honor's sake.
On legs of broken branches and thatched thorned stems He Strides, No longer. Brought low, fallen from on High Once golden light - a warmth of ages. The Noble light of Justice, torn from his grasp.
Honor dashed Upon The rocks, welcoming arms no longer. Gone from the Light of Day. Only Ragged Cries in the midday night of Shadow. Frozen and forlorn bitterment - vainglorious once Only Burning embers of Hatred remain, ever potent. Cast down. Forgotten. Fallen.
Now the King of Rats upon a Throne of Thorns. An Eternal vigil of Torment. With only the patient council of Vengeance.
I revised an older painting of one of the main characters of my graphic novel "MYRE" which will be presented at my Myre panel at Anthrocon in less than three weeks! If you're going to AC, pop by the Friday panels "Alector's Graphic Novel" and find out what is there to see. It will hopefully be surprising!
