Alright folks, here's something new and exciting: a second deviation that's related to a previous deviation! It's never been done before!
Anyhow, this is a continuation off of my Chester
deviation. Let me introduce each character in their own paragraph:
On the left we have the elder sister, Fida. Her role is to feed items, loot, and money to monsters so that when the player slays them, they can get some sort of instant gratification. How does she do it? That's a secret I cannot say
. But what we can say for certain is that she uses her left arm for this purpose. She obtains this monster loot from the NPC guild in much the same way her brother does.
On the right we have the younger brother, Hyde. His services were rejected by the NPC guild, so in retribution he steals miscellany from the treasury and in a surprise turn that no one could guess from his name, hides it (Wow!). For things like pennies and potions, he hides them in guild members' houses. Now you might ask, "How is this retribution?" Well, the NPC's don't know it's there, but all the players assume it is. Result: constant ransacking by player. Ancient pottery smashed, private property rummaged through, homes invaded - all because of a little trick by Hyde. Of course, the NPC guild doesn't know who's doing this, but they hate it. Hyde has various "infiltration" tools on his belt, flashlights on his head, and the subtlety of a boot, so he's never caught. I, however, know all this because I'm the one who suggested it to him.
Anyhow, originally I was just going to make this into a scrap because I wasn't serious about Chester's siblings, but people kept egging me on and I kinda wanted to try it too. I originally wanted to make this look like a painted piece, but in the end I settled for cel-shading since my alpha approach killed the colors. I at least got to "paint" a messy canvas for the background, though. Hooyay.
