#6 – Lenore

| November 6, 2011 | 2 Comments


Birth name Jennifer Davis. Breaking from the troll universe for a bit, Lenore is the most popular act in the Deep Mountain Sideshow of the Mystic and Macabre. Her stage persona is a sorrowful gothic princess who lilts through the show, fleeting and beautiful, to dance on broken glass and razorblades, fall asleep on a bed of nails and ultimately fall to her death each night. In reality, she’s a smart, vain, confident woman addicted to the freedom the circus provides her. Lenore grew up in a stifling Mormon household that told her – in the gentlest, friendliest way possible – that sex was shameful and she was nothing without a man to define her. It was especially hard given a rebellious nature, sharp tongue and the knowledge that she was beautiful in a different way – a sort of beauty not praised in Provo. So instead of going to BYU, marrying at 19 and having three children, Lenore ran. And she never stopped.

24. Amazing. Hails from the glistening shores of Salt Lake City, Utah. I like indie comics, webcomics, all things DC and many things Marvel, and I think designing thirty characters will be a great exercise for me! Who's ready to get rolling?
