The Dark Side

Heres the design for the Warlock character class, despite appearances he is one of the Heroes and fills the role of the unlikely ally on the Quest. A practitioner of the dark arts his shadow magic allows him to drain the life force of his foes and instil insanity in the weak of mind :O

There are a number of ways I could have gone with the design for this character, but I felt that mixing the clothing of a robed medieval monk with the more youthful emo and goth stereotypes (side swept bangs covering one eye, mixture of black and bright hues, pallor and psychological associations) made for an interesting base onto which to apply the occult symbolism.

As the Warlock uses spell books and talismans for his offensive spell casting I have outfitted him with an Arcane Grimoire and Cursed Skull Fetish. It should be good fun creating the variants of this character class :)
