Otherworld Sketches [3]

(A5 sketch with mainly ballpoint pen)

I shall do one thing in this life – one thing certain – that is, love you,
and long for you, and keep wanting you till I die.

Another OC. His name is Mordecai (nicknamed Mort). Mort is a dark-winged digger-dragon, who lives underground in deep, complex caves and tunnels, but loves to watch the sun rise and leaves his territory every morning to admire the beauty of the colors of the sky. He longs for the far distance, for the high above, yet knowing it is out of reach – but that doesn’t discourage him.
He belongs to the fourth world, which rose out of the fragments of the upheaval.

  1. Is he going to be in the book? I would like to see more about him, I feel sympathy for him.

    Can he fly, or his wings are mostly decorative? (He probably doesn’t use them a lot in those tunnels).

    • Not in the first one – there wouldn’t be enough space to give him the attention he deserves. He’ll be in the second book with the “short”stories.

      He can fly, but not far, not long, not well. He’s better at gliding. As you correctly wrote, he doesn’t use them a lot, so they are quite stiff and clumsy and weak. Also, as he was very heavy bones and scale armor, it’s not easy for him to stay long in the air.
