Hessyst will return shortly! In the meantime, I got to marry my muse and best friend @nteerikorpi last week. Beyond thrilled to share the news with you. I’ll be back in a bit with more updates and comic stuff soon. 💪🏽❤️ Special thanks to the supremely skilled photographer: @fredabankswed .
“...After that battle there were many other boys like me; boys without fathers. The villagers said it was the worst thing that could’ve happened to our people. An entire generation of lost children, with no one left to train us on how to become men. The best Paeladian warriors had always been men--but my sister Cata, she broke that rule. Many elders took offense at her choice to seize the reigns of our destiny when no one else would dare to break tradition like that. I knew her better than most, even back then. She was angry, defiant, and a little sad. Sure, she wasn’t the strongest or fastest there ever was, but she was a shining example of everything our people aspired to be. I wanted to be just like her. All of the boys did.
She taught us the spirit of fighting. She pressed us to reach for more and suffer through what others could not. She made us into Paelads. Through her lessons I came to believe the only path in life worth chasing was that of the Sacred Knight, a class of warrior which the elders said had reached the end of its line in the Battle of Two Cliffs.” -
Here’s a piece from the world I’ve been creating for many years. I’m so happy that it’s finally coming together into something I’m really proud to share with you. -
