Straxus. A brilliant tactician and eternal schemer, Straxus has existed for centuries and has always pursued one thing only - DOMINATION.

Straxus is no mortal man, but rather a spirit of some kind, capable of possessing a human being to use as his instrument. This makes Straxus particularly difficult to deal with - as he cannot be "killed" by any normal means. If his host dies, he simply finds another.

Straxus often finds a powerful, charismatic individual to champion, and steers them towards conquest - preferring to be the power BEHIND the throne rather than sit upon it himself. What his ultimate goals are, however, are known only to himself.
Straxus is currently serving Empress Everline of the Feloran Empire. His knowledge and skill are quite valuable to the young Empire, but can he ever be truly trusted?

Special weekend update!
Happy Easter everyone!
Have you seen Fallen? (1998) :)
The description reminded me of that movie.. I really liked it ^^

Happy Easter to you too ^^

I haven't seen the movie, but I just looked it up on IMDB and it certainly sounds familiar!
Y'know, with him having been around for so long, you'd think he would have achieved his goal by now...
Matt Knab
Indeed! He's doggedly persistent, despite his setbacks.
Happy Easter. Great character shot. Love those eyes, hehe.
Matt Knab
Same to you!
Thanks, I was trying something new with them. Plus, glow effects! XD
Honestly, he just grows on me more and more. I feel wrong that a villain is one of my faves o.O Will we ever see his "true" form, or is it just like an invisible entity?
Matt Knab
I like him a lot as a villain! I'm not sure if I've ever drawn his wraith form, but it's basically like living tendrils of red mist.
I saw the movie Fallen. It was about a demon named Azrael that could jump from body to body possessing at will. Denzel Washington tried to destroy this demon, pursuing it to the end. I won't give it away, but...the movie wasn't too bad.

I think Straxus has a horcrux somewhere.
Matt Knab
Or a phylactery? ;)
