I didn’t design any of these guys before I started the comic – well, a couple of the councilors had some preliminary doodles, but nothing concrete.  So I just threw some scribbles on the page and hoped they turned out okay.  The councilors I knew all dressed quite richly, and the commander here obviously wore the free acolytes’ uniform, so that helped a little, but the rest I made up on the spot.  I’m really hoping I don’t regret giving him those scars or that blind eye.
