Aaaah, there’s sort of a story behind him?
He’s a character of my own who originated from a concept I thought was cool. I wanted to make a river spirit character based on a red river hog, and the character’s appearance eventually evolved in a way where he came to represent some sort of “wounded” (probably a polluted) river. I still haven’t worked out all the bits of his backstory or personality or how long he’s existed or how he came into existence (etc. etc.), but that’s the basic premise behind him! I might look to some myths for inspiration later on while I’m working it out.
Thank you so much!! c:
