#3 Twins of Ruel

| November 3, 2010 | 12 Comments

Lords of a lost empire, the Twins, as they are called about court, arrived in Hold on a mission they’ve shared with none. From their arrival on twin white stallions, they have done little more publicly than attended the evening balls at court, quietly watching the dancers from a distance. They remain silent as to their origins, though, by their demeanor and garb they hold a station of nobility. They harbour an outward distaste towards the Fae of Hold, something the Princess Lorne finds perplexing.

The Ruel Twins wear matching yet reverse-worn clothing, have opposing parted hair styles, and weild matching long swords of the finest craftsmanship. Their stallions – their only possessions save small field packs, are of a breed not seen in the lands of Hold. Their emerald dress is wholly alien in the northern Dominance, as the fashion has ever been of greys and browns, with the nobility wearing white and blues.

Whisperers have mentioned seeing the twins spending odd hours by the streams around Hold. Rumours of the twins performing strange rituals swirl about the townships. One thing is certain, there is a strange fire in their eyes and their secrets are something Chondra Flicker has been tasked to discover.

    Nice work on the sleeves. Creating subtle bunching on a semi-tight piece of clothing in a convincing manner is not the worlds easiest thing to do.

      Thanks man! Yeah – the trickiest thing in inking is creating different fabric types. It’s a real challenge to distinguish leather from velvet from fur…

    They’re beautiful…I want one! Your back story for them is interesting; it makes me want to know their secrets, too! And, as always, your execution amazes me.

      D’awwww 😀 I’m trying to have each character reveal more of the backstory within the world and touch on the existing characters. I’ve been pondering the next one all day…

    So they’re Mirror twins, like me, eh?? Which one is the good twin and which is evil? You should make the good twin the left-handed one. Also, he should wear blue.

    • saulone says:

      haha! yep – mirror twins indeed. You and your blue versus green thing… 🙂 These guys have a particularly interesting secret that is hinted at in the backstory/bio 😉 I’ll make a note of the left handed thing!

    Ominous in stereo. I like it, man. Like a sinister, elven ‘romulus & remus’ vibe.
