Here’s a sketch of one of my favorite characters from LINE OF DESCENT, Marquis Reynard LeFevre. He’s a mysterious and dangerous enemy of the Gardeners’ Parisian ancestors. He’s both a practitioner of Hinduism and a forefather of the Mesmerist movement. Oh yeah—and he likes to host masquerade parties in underground crypts!
One of his quotes:
“Think about the world the way it is now. Each generation mourns for the golden years of their youth. Each generation weeps that times have never been so bad. Then their children grow old and wail that things have become even more unbearable. Their golden years are the previous generation’s worst days.”
