Argument by CanisAlbus Argument by CanisAlbus
Chazaqiel the Chinese Afghan hound having a dispute with one of his advisers, a Persian Saluki called Farzin.
Farzin must be a brand new acquaintance for the most of you, so why don't I ramble something about him here...
He's a grand vizier, the right hand man of the ruler. He's cunning, academic and tends to avoid schism. Farzin adores everything luxurious and beautiful, and is often seen wearing ornamental amethyst jewellery and headdresses decorated with feathers. As the most of the Salukis living near the palace are smooth-coated desert type, he's very proud of his jet black fur and lush, slightly wavy featherings. In short: vainglorious, feminine, bookworm, clever. I think he's my first genderqueer character too :>
He's usually very collected and obeying, but after the exile of Yazata he started rebelling against his superiors and secretly helped the fugitive. After the treachery was revealed Chazaqiel sentenced him to be publicly beheaded.
*successfully spoils the character's life story*

Pencil and Gimp.

Chazaquiel is fascinating. He's a brutal and nasty character, but it's so refined and although he has his empire in an iron grip he worked and clawed his way to power... good grief! He's one of those villains that you have to love, he's just such a BOSS. A bad boss at that, but still a BOSS. Gaaaaaah I dunno, I just think he's epic with all his smarts and war prowess!
