Ark Redux by Kid-Apocalypse Ark Redux by Kid-Apocalypse
100 Themes Challenge, #11 "Memory"

Ark is actually a rather old character of mine from a WRBD precursor called Rubber Bullet Kisses. It also had a rather large cast initially, but was pared down to Ark, Peppermint (affectionately called Minty by all involved), and Luther.

Basically, Ark was some kind of twisted fourteen-year-old Messiah/avatar/whatever. The religion he belonged to had been wiped out at least three years before he was born, but all the souls and leftover tendrils of belief still flapped around like live wires. High-ranked government officials transformed his entire colony into a plague pit of corpses to ferret him out, then they raised him into a little junior killing machine. Luther found and rescued him (against Ark's will), and...that's about as far as I ever thought it out. Minty wanted to rehabilitate him, and Luther wanted to let him continue his existence as a bazooka, just pointed in a different direction.

All the colors involved were me playing with Photoshop because I'm an insomniac and my hands hurt too much to do anything meaningful.

And even though I know nobody really cares, Peppermint's real name was actually Pilvi.

He is a fun old guy, I wish I could find or reconstruct what I had... His hair was very fun to draw.

I don't like insulting people, and I always feel bad when I do and then they say 'no problem' and tell me that they don't want me to make up for it.

Oh really, don't worry about it. I must just be kinda sensitive since I don't get to be home as much as I'd like, I get maybe four hours of sleep a day, and....such things.
