Magister Artwork!

Well, I was expecting to tell the story behind Magister, but that's going to have to wait, because I have artwork!

Name: Ariella Goldstein
Supernatural classification: Vampire
Title: Dame Inspector
Born in 1919 in Weimar, Germany to Joseph and Miriam Goldstein. She was turned during World War Two, and now serves as a criminal investigator to the supernatural community, the Society Arcana.

Name:Nick Whitehall
Supernatural classification: Magi
Title: Magister Arcana
Nick is the eldest son of Martin and Deborah Whitehall and second generation police officer and a third generation English family on his father's side. Nick graduated from Chicago Police Academy in the top quarter of his class. For the last few years he has been assigned as a patrol officer out of District 12 station on Monroe, in the West Loop. His partner is Benjamin Avery. Nick was engaged to Dr. Mia Rosario, PhD, Clinical Psychologist, but broke up with her soon after the death of his uncle, Thomas Whitehall.

This was something I discussed with Richard, and he took it and ran with it. It's Ariella's transformation into a raven.

This last is Nick and the villain of the first Magister story: the Servant. I always pictured Nick's magic looking like plasma rather than the usual sparkly lights and fire.

There's a lot more, but I'll save those for later.

Thank you to Richard Price, who does amazing work, and has been a joy to work with.
