Dynamic Duos: Nil and Lu (Segment One)

Dear Reader,

Once upon a time, I was hell bent on making Nil and Lu a canon pair. Further plot development led me to realise that things would turn out for the better if they didn’t.

So, yes, that idea is now in the bin. It is for the best, plot-wise.

This, of course, does not mean that they do not care for each other. Lu is a meddler by nature; he pokes his head into people’s business, even if it is often unwarranted. Nil? His feelings for Lu go beyond mere tolerance, at least. He is a sentinel by nature, and Lu is someone important to his boss.

I found some photos from an old shoot. Do enjoy.

Your Friend and Author,

Marien

Nil kind of lives and breathes the stalker-bodyguard thing.

Tête-à-Tête: Proust and The Sociopathic Hero

Dear Reader,

I haven’t done one of these in a long time, and we still have two characters to go. I’ve been holding off on releasing Nil’s bio since my plans for him have changed over the course of time, and he has been elevated to the Hero of Heroes.

I won’t discuss that in detail, though – it would ultimately spoil the story for all of you.

Nil, in all honesty, is one of the most difficult characters to work with. To start, he is a clone of an original human specimen designed to be more bioweapon than actual human. He has a tendency to exhibit aloof, detached behaviour, and is only somewhat expressive when interacting with his Great Dane, Gambit. Nearly everyone is in awe of him due to the extent of his abilities, all of which he uses freely to accomplish what is expected of him.

What I enjoy most about him is that his thoughts and actions are that of a man living in the post-apocalyptic future. He is by no means materialistic, and is geared towards ensuring the survival of those he has sworn to protect. He has a rather dysfunctional moral compass; he would not hesitate to trade one life to save a more valuable one.

I hope you enjoy learning more about my favourite hero.

Your Friend and Author,

Marien
