High House Pierce
Age: 10 years as a High House
Colors: Black, White/Silver, and Cyan
Motto: Purity Prevails
LEO: Logan Pierce
The youngest and most aggressive of the High Houses, Pierce has only been governing for roughly 10 years. Their specialty is in weapons design and manufacturing. Much like the weapons they create, Pierce has proven to be an intimidating and disruptive presence. Within four years of becoming a High House, Pierce managed to completely upend the balance of power in Trinity - a state the city continues to suffer six years later.
Pierce is a House which celebrates the primacy and purity of Inner City citizens and culture, while shunning the world beyond Trinity’s walls. Pierce will do anything to expand and preserve the power and glory of themselves and Inner Trinity. The fanatical energy and latent danger within Pierce disturbs House Heritage, as they sense Pierce has little respect for the collaborative structure of Trinity’s government.
still no explanation?
he just really likes dogs let him live
This needs to be photo shopped into some epic wizard doggy war image.
I CANT HANDLE HOW MAJESTIC AND STOIC DAN RADCLIFF LOOKS WITH ALL THOSE DOGS. THEYRE ALL SITTING. RHOSBQLSNXLFNGK
Wait, what if this is some weird advertising for the last season of Wilfred because Daniel Radcliffe and Elijah Wood always get confused for each other.
The LEO’s of House Heritage
Present any form of bullshit to Yvonne Heritage, and she’ll politely serve you a helping of verbal blunt force trauma. Lioness of House Heritage, she is one of the most steadfast and fierce LEO’s in the history of her house. Yvonne has the longest reign of any LEO in history as she’s held her seat for 53 years.
Sharp as a whip, spiteful and with a highly political mind, it’s no wonder Heritage has managed to keep it’s foothold as the oldest house within Trinity.
Though she excels in her business, family life has always been a struggle. In her opinion her children and grandchildren are largely complete idiots when it comes to the power play of Inner City Politics. Begrudgingly, she’s chosen an heir in her youngest grandson, Everett.
Smart, capable and armed with the dry wit only a 15 year old can have, Everett Heritage is a very old soul in a very young body. As heir to House Heritage, Everett is never far from his grandmothers side. He is under her ceaseless tutelage, shadowing her everywhere. Every day is another test for Everett.
While he has many of Yvonne’s talents, his approach is softer than Yvonne’s. He’s proud and happy to be named his grandmother’s heir, relishing learning new things every day. However, sometimes Everett finds himself struggling under the pressure of what his grandmother, and eventually the House itself expects of him.
The pressure of upholding the Heritage legacy is enough to make anyone crack, but Everett is made of tougher stuff…or at least he hopes he is.
I am pretty fucking stoked about these two. Their character design’s are so much fun to ink and paint! Yvonne is such a pistol and Everett such a sweetie that its hard not to love them <3
The Corporate Houses:
Leftovers from the world before the Withering, the Corporate Houses are the main political entities in Trinity and beyond. Once large global corporations, time has evolved them into something like local feudal lordships known as Houses. Now they fill the role of sovereign powers, providing sustenance and protection to those loyal to them.
Houses still produce goods and services, but who receives them is often dictated more by fealty and contractual loyalty than markets. Each house is led by a LEO (Lord/Lady Executive Officer). Something like a monarch, a LEO controls and coordinates everything within their own House. LEO’s are often called “House Lions.” Successors are chosen by the current LEO and while many choose family for the next in line, this isn’t always the case.
Arranged into large hierarchies of partnership-alliances, each House acts as subordinate to their High House. High Houses have risen above their peers through shrewd maneuvering to become a dominant unifying faction for the Houses beneath. Each Lower House is (more or less) loyal to its patron house and peers.
Each House is always looking to improve its place within the hierarchy, making backstabbing commonplace. Seismic shakeups in the governing High Houses are uncommon, but when they do happen it’s sudden and brutal. At best the losing Houses will find themselves a shadow of their former glory - at worst they face complete extermination. While brutality is frowned upon, this cutthroat approach is considered, “Just the way things are.”
The city-state of Trinity earned its name through being governed by three competing High Houses. Now one of them has fallen, and the balance of power is shifting precariously.
We’re prepping our readers for some cool stuff coming in the next few weeks. Some core concepts and more excitingly…new characters!!! YAAAYYY!!!
When I do my shading work, I lay out all the shadows and crazy highlights in super obnoxious colors
because I hate my eyes. Recently I was working on this image of Link and I couldn’t stop laughing. All I could think of was this.
To be honest I’m STILL giggling. /carrie
i compiled some pics of dreamworks female characters who were introduced in the same years as disney female characters- rapunzel, anna, and honey lemon
its up to you to decide which company is more progressive when designing female characters who appear distinct from the company’s last female protagonist, even tho its sorta extremely obvious
#disney needs to get off of glen keane’s dick
i know i reblogged this already but that hashtag sums it up
