When Shiro and Lance were Sendak’s prisoners I think Shiro came so close to losing his control. He was back to being treated like the disgraced Champion and he was trying to protect his injured comrade. Lance wasn’t privy to how Sendak tortured him, but he was able to gain enough consciousness to shoot Sendak in the back before fainting. I feel like Lance would not have been able to look at Shiro the same if he’d been awake. Another study! Watercolor on Hot Press.
