more of [this idea] bc it’s a cool idea
here have the other loser merc.
Locus has no lasting markings from before his military service bc he tossed that part of his life and left it behind when he committed to being more weapon than man. Whatever was there was blotted out by others or just faded over time.
anyways, we got armour markings bc that’s significant if he goes by armour name rather than real name. the bright orange band for Felix, yellow and steel for Washington + that existential crisis he made Locus face, UNSC logo for military service but also his commitment to being a perfect soldier in an army - it’s a little messed up (eagle now a skeleton, wings losing feathers, colour shifted from white to red and black) because he wants to live to that soldier ideal, but he’s failing somehow, and also bc allegiance no longer with UNSC but charon. Then you have the endless wave of tally marks for all the dead people to his name. His back is covered with them, they’re starting to bleed over his sides.
..sometimes i feel i draw this AU less bc of tattoos but more bc i have to draw everyone shirtless lol
