Never stop drawing Eight companions. Have I done anything else this week? Not really. But I’m getting 6 done per day, so it’ll only take me through the weekend. Unless I go crazy and do villains and single-story companions too. My list would double.
However, it would be very problematic to draw characters like Kro'ka or Selta, who are blobby creatures with no proper description. (Kro'ka’s a little blobby weasel with no neck? Selta’s a giant jellyfish with tentacles or something? Well, that’s helpful.)
Anyway, this is Sam, dark!Sam and Kode. For the record, once I actually finish these things, I’ll actually include blurbs about who the hell these people are.
… the Victim of the Week in this Sailor Moon episode was the Eighth Doctor.
This episode actually does take place during his trapped-alone-on-Earth-with-amnesia period, so it’s totally conceivable that it could be him. Randomly giving a violin recital in early 90s Tokyo is a perfectly believable thing for him to do.

Jafar al-Barmaki: The third generation of the Barmaks to
serve as vizer, Jafar was Harun’s closest advisor and favorite drinking
companion. He was celebrated in his own
time as an accomplished orator, judge, writer, and patron of the arts. According to legend, he was also scary
efficient, making in one night over a thousand legal decisions, all of which
the caliph approved.
[Note: A full biography is here, but there are several pieces
of information on the other side which I personally think will be relevant in
MAGI. So, fair warning.]
Abu Hashim Masrur: Not exactly a courtier, Masrur was an
African eunuch slave who served as the Caliph’s bodyguard and executioner,
hence why MAGI’s Masrur was originally intended to be black. It may also be why Sharrkan’s go-to insult is
Day 5 - Favourite Quote: River fights Timelord “The Eleven”
↳ River: Oh, you want a fight? You’ve just got one! [Sucker punches the Eleven]
The Eleven:[Enraged] What are you? You’re not a Timelord… What are you? What! Fascinating, some kind of aberration. [Fervently sniffs River] A hybrid! A freak of nature. [Captivated] We have so much in common.
