An artist’s impression of what Beckett and Mercer may have looked like when they were younger, according to headcanons between myself and travellingviking.
Beckett would have been slightly pudgy, as his family would have attempted to provide him with extra nutrition in hopes that it would make him taller. I also read somewhere (either in a fanfic or a synopsis of the Price of Freedom) that Cutler was rather sickly as a child. I think this may have been another excuse for his family to feed him that extra bit. Here is how I picture Beckett in his mid-late teens to early twenties.
Mercer would have had rather sexy hair before he grew it out. He would have had a couple of nicks and scars by the time reached his twenties. Ian Mercer loved to scuffle. He was brought up in a working-class family, likely the eldest of many siblings, and he’d work multiple jobs to provide for them. I think he’d have posed as the ‘man of the house’, because I assume his father was absent due to death or that he left the family.
Probably the best thing I’ve drawn in a while. I think this is actually worthy of being pinned on my bedroom wall.
Quality is crap due to camera.
Decided to dress Thomas Schneider in 18th century gear because it’s my favourite historical period when it comes to fashion. He would most likely dress in heavy clothes and a scarf, because he’s a hypochondriac who has a brittle immune system. Thomas also uses a cane because he’s very frail and has back problems. Not to mention a weak heart. He’s just a giant bundle of awkwardness. With fluffy blonde hair.
