At the moment he steps on the screen, he basically insults Garmadon - /garmadon/ - and sure, Garmadon just shrugs it off, but you can tell that even Garmadon knows this guy isn’t someone to be messed with. And Garmadon was a Big Bad. If you’re scarier than a Big Bad… That’s pretty damn scary.
Then we got his backstory. He and Garmadon have a history. And. That’s really, really great, because Garmadon definitely has some things buried in his past that he wants to forget about.
Clouse is badass, terrifying, obviously the only person who knows what he’s doing in Chen’s entire unit, including Chen himself, and he has a backstory and motivation to do what he does. And he’s despicable and easy to hate.
I really like Clouse ok.
(Oh and the purple turned out okay. That’s good. I had to mix colors.)
