So, a while back I’d decided that my 2.0 model of EOS would eventually end up getting married, but I could never figure out exactly who she’d choose. And, after a recent ask got me thinking about it again in a roundabout fashion, I ended up sketching up some ideas and putting together a character (or at least the start of one). Meet Eugene Quincy Michaud, medical student/eventual doctor, dungeons and dragons fan (he plays a paladin), and all-around short, grumpy, tsundere dude.
They don’t get married until after he gets his M.D. and he moves to the island soon after, taking EOS’s last name of Tracy (since frankly I have a very hard time seeing EOS with a last name that ISN’T Tracy). Eugene becomes a sort of live-in doctor, taking care of injuries the team brings back from missions and lingering effects of John being up in space so much, as well as helping with Grandma Tracy (who I imagine must still be around since 2060’s medicine is certainly far advanced from our own), and eventually taking care of any possible children that he and EOS end up adopting. And even though he never goes on missions, I’m certain he ends up getting martial arts training from Kayo, just in case of an emergency. (He’s also nearsighted but wears contacts instead of glasses most of the time.)
rather than throwing these rejected doodles that were gonna be for a merch design im working on i guess i’ll post ‘em as a ‘work-in-progress’. i kinda like the style i did but eh all i can see is disappointing flaws when i look at it so…i’ll try again! :)
