Aww yeah, more long-awaited stuff finally coming to fruition - here's the man of the hour, Mason the lighthouse keeper! And FYI - he's a mage too, but I won't reveal his power for a loooong while..

And it's that time of the update folks - behind-the-scenes infodump incoming:

Back when I was still kicking around ideas for Vitreous, Artem, Gust and Mason were always going to be parts of the early chapters. Mason's face design was inspired by an albatross of all things - to the point where his original name actually was Albatross. Yeah, I'm glad I changed that...

So yeah the large brow-ridge and beaky nose were the features I carried forward. Costume design was a bit of a random one - he originally wore a navy seaman's coat with an albatross wing design on the sleeves. Here's the link to his very early concepts:

So yeah he's changed a fair bit but not really xD in the end I just went for an old-man-on-the-seas kinda look. (But he's not even that old - only 40).

How he ended up being the lighthouse keeper or how young Gust ended up crashing at his place are both deep mysteries. All in good time, dear readers...
