“Do you remember the stories I’d tell you when you were a child? There was a great queen once, the mightiest Hero of them all. And you know what you would say…?”
“Teach me to be a Hero.”
“Mm… you’ve done me proud, girl. You’ve always done me proud.”

“My brigade had been pinned down by the enemy, until there was just me and two other men left. We retreated to a cave but they never came after us, they just blew up the entrance. We spent three days in that cave, no food, no light… just three men waiting to die in the dark.”

My brigade had been pinned down by the enemy, until there was just me and two other men left. We retreated to a cave but they never came after us, they just blew up the entrance. We spent three days in that cave, no food, no light… just three men waiting to die in the dark.

Tell fortune of her blindness;
Tell nature of her decay;
Tell friendship of unkindness;
Tell justice of delay:
And if they will reply,
Then give them all the lie.

Sir Walter Beck, Fable 3.

Something I’ve been doodling on and off for the past couple of days. I really liked Sir Walter as a character. Partially because I’ve got a fondness for gruff yet warm-hearted old soldiers, but also because it’s so different to have a supportive, balanced and positive (pseudo)father figure in a game. There aren’t too many good dad figures in fiction, y'know?

Also a 100% of his face because I tried something different and I’m quietly pleased with how it turned out. So pleased I’m deliberately posting this when everyone is asleep because I’m a big dumb embarrassed baby, uvu
