5 – The Alchemist of Medecca : The 30 Characters Challenge

5 – The Alchemist of Medecca

| November 5, 2012 | 2 Comments

The Alchemist has gone by many names over his illustrious tenure as the greatest of medicinal healers, herbalists, and brewers of potent elixers- the general assumption being that he long ago discovered the secret to making Ambrosia, the Elixer of Immortality. The truth, however, is far less romantic… and darker.

For the Alchemist, now wandering the Steppes of the Cruth and far, far from home, is an entity possessed by greed and jealousy, jealousy of his siblings and their triumphs real and imagined over the countless years they have all been apart.  It tires of the constant droning of the masses of the markets of Medecca, the whining and neediness of humanity, and wishes to leave it all behind. It has made it’s fortune through hard work - an unheard of feat among it’s kind – but always the vile anger seethes just below the surface of it’s leathery smile and polite, if somewhat detached, demeanor.

An image of the Alchemist revealed will come tomorrow.

    Ah, this is great. Definitely a character I want to know more about.

    All of your work here so far has been hugely inspirational to me; a great combination of excellent illustration and intriguing backstories. Can’t wait to see more!

  2. Aww, thanks, Explodian! This is a fun challenge, and I’m glad you like my stuff. That last pic of yours, I commented on it just moments ago, before I saw your comment here- it’s a great pic!
