Introducing An Ember In The Ashes: The Empire (part one)

“Five hundred years ago, a warrior brute named Taius united the fractured Martial clans, and swept down from the north, crushing the Scholar Empire and taking over most of the continent. He named himself Emperor and established his dynasty. He was called the Masked One, for the unearthly silver mask he wore to scare his enemies. His legacy still rules today.”

The Brute of the North aka Boten (GET IT?!)

He’s been bouncing around in my head the past day or two and is probably inspired by a million things but mostly the Frazetta-Conan the Barbarian. There’s this one picture (I think) that has Conan’s long hair framing his hair a certain way that I want to emulate but I can’t find it for my life. Hell, I’m not even sure it’s Conan. Will make a better attempt when I’m not tired and busy.
