Bookahs, all of them! How dare they to challenge my alchemic genius? When I come back with a fully fledged thesis on the art of turning trash into gold, of creating love from a drop and botteling up juvenescence they will all come running to me, I just know it.
"Mr Jekyll, let us partake on your beautiful inventions, let us have a sip!"
That is how they will cry and lament, I just know it! But me, the great master of the potions, I will not hear their stupid cries, no. All my finances have gone to ashes over my extensive research, but does the academy want to finance further researches? No, of course not, because they are all bookahs! Oh, the Order of Whispers gladly takes my traceless poisons, all of them, or my serum of truth.
They know of my genius, yet they deny me more resources to conduct even greater scientific explorations! They don´t know what´s possible, they are infidels, all of them!
I don´t need their stupid gold, I will get my ingredients and equipment and if I have to steal for it!

Hey guys,
it has been a while since I posted my last Asura and since my Condition Necro already sports this look for quite a while I thought it would be time to share the little guy!
I wanted to create a little mad scientist, heavily influenced also by Dr. Jekyll from the famous novel of the same name. I just love Victorian aesthetics and felt like I needed to do another look in that direction. Also I felt like some kind of poisoner would be really fitting for a condition class and so I made this little hybrid. I couldn´t bring myself to make him old and grumpy and instead wanted to keep him a little cute!
I know the pants might feel a little controversial to some, but I just thought it created the most convincing frock coat to me, I just like it´s overall silhouette. All in all I tried to keep him noble and Victorian in armour pieces and dyes alike.
I really wanted to screen in the Almuten Mansion in the Gendarran Fields as well as I really love the marine appeal of it, but sadly it is afflicted by a lighting bug at the moment and I didn´t want to blind you all.
I hope you enjoy my fancy little Asura ^^

You got the privateer scepter! I didn't notice it, when I went trough your gorgeous screens the first time and thought, this would fit perfect here xD
He looks like a fancy modern wizard to me. I really love the screens in the library :) And you definitely hit the victorian theme with everything.
Take a fancy gold!^^

Yeah, the scepter is so tiny on Asura sadly xD Nearly invisible, that´s why I also used it in another look on a bigger character
Thanks for the nice vote, I´m glad you enjoy him! ^^

It's Rooooobäääärt!
I really love this Dr. Jekyll- look so much and it's awesome how you managed to create such an outstanding look by using an Asura since I believe that Asuras are still one of a bigger challenge to create something really neat. But you did it again and you gave us such an awesome character!
I simply love the armour mix here! The hat is on point and amazing and he also looks kinda cute wearing it. The chestpiece is my absolute favourite one it's very noble and perfectly fitting.
Your dye scheme is very natural, the brown- tones are a wonderful match to the Victorian setting and theme and they are also quite matching the surroundings you were using for the screens.
Speaking of screens- again, outstanding job, wonderful and perfect usage of the different locations. I really love the ones where he's in the library and where he experiments with all those potions.
The little additions of the backpack and that cute little scepter are creating a more authentic and wonderful overall look that deserves all the Gold I own

really cool asura, love the creative approach you took
I am not sure if I really like the legs though, the stone parts feel a little out of place, although I do see what you mean silhouette wise
still, the overall character is lovely, the weapons underline his victorian heritage and your screens are muted and great as always

I really love this victorian look and the scepter with it is so perfect. What a cool idea!
Also the armor mix and the colors are so on point for this theme and the hat is the cherry on top ^-^
The screen locations are also very fitting and beautiful. I really like the use of the backpiece here aswell.
Your asuras are always very unique and original and I can't wait to see more of them !
It's a very late but deserved gold ! ;P
