|Does this hat make my eyes look evil?|
Thankyouthankyouthankyou for making three dimensional characters! Not only are they smart, but the have fucking humor and react to situations in ways that normal people would.
Which brings me back to Althalus. Do you see that evil looking fucker on the cover? Look at him. He scares the shit out of me. That's Althalus, and whatever introverted retard they hired to visualize him was WAAAAY of the mark. Al (we'll cal him "Al" from now on), anyway, Al is not evil, he's a smarmy, tricky fucker, kind of a douchebag, but deep down he's got a heart of gold. Cliche' I know, but it works, so don't fuck with it.
Just a quick rundown: Master thief and trickster, Al is fucking around one day and is taken in by a cat/goddess who shields him from time and uses him to complete various tasks throughout history to achieve a specific end. He develops a relationship over time with the cat/goddess which becomes a romance.
...also, he fucks the cat/goddess.
