This is a picture that I did of Thann, he's a character I've had since the early 1980s, the son of another character of mine named Loki after the Norse God.
His story is rather long and strange. He was born out of a storm when Loki and his mother Lydia were struck by ball lightning during a semi-discorporate mingling. He began his life as a small cloud, and then took a baby's shape and began to grow into a young man within the span of a few hours. Loki saw this happening and quickly used a magical ring's power to keep Thann from growing to full adulthood. If he had, Thann would have looked too much like his father, and wouldn't have had any time to be a child. As it turns out, the spell had a lasting effect, and Thann remained a youth. The best way to tell him and his father apart is apparent age, and the color of their eyes. Thann's are green, and Loki's are grey. During Thann's early years, he was placed in charge of a city state called Seilar, a place on the borderlands of Faerie.
