This is an older drawing. The original sketch was from 2017 and I fixed it up on my tablet. You can see Byleth’s scars here which aren’t usually visible. They’re a sore subject for him since it’s a reminder of when he fell from Heaven.
Byleth’s story is explored more intimately in my book, Bittersweet, Love is War. He was more than willing to let me write it out and delve into some of his inner workings.
Lestan is in my urban fantasy book, STIGMA. He was cool with that, but writing it took a toll on both of us. His history is pretty rough and explored more in other drawings in the gallery.
