This is Kurtell. He is a brave adventurer in a fantasy world in the dark ages. He got a little too brave and ended up experimented upon by dangerously intelligent entities, who then released him from custody after giving him two swords.
Upon leaving the facility he had been trapped in for weeks, Kurtell found that his new swords were now talking to him. They played kind of an angel/devil act, the darker sword whispering dark ideas and depressing revelations in his ear, and the silvery, lighter sword keeping him grounded in reality, being rational and kind.
When he needs advice, however, the two swords work in unison to formulate a master plan of action, causing him to win every battle he's ever been in since he obtained the two weapons.

It is unknown whether the swords actually speak to Kurtell (as nobody else can hear them), or if the experiments performed on the poor man were too much for his mind and caused him to experience auditory hallucinations.

(I plan on playing Kurtell as a character in Dungeons & Dragons some time, as I created his concept long ago for the game, but only just today fleshed it out and drew him.)

I hope so. I'm debating whether to play him next, or to play a schizophrenic body-snatcher named Janfu. I might use Janfu for one of the 30 characters, actually....

Ha, ha! Thanks! Most of my friends laughed at it when I mentioned it, and I don't know whether or not it was a good "that's cool!" laugh. XD

Oooh man, he sounds like a neat character. Nice design, too! He looks so tormented, poor guy.

Thanks! Yeah, his life ain't the easiest, what with the constantly clashing voices in his head.

Security: Sir, you can't take those swords in here.

Kurtell: Aww, common' these swords are my best friends! I gotta have friends right?

Do these swords have names? He totally named them right?

Yeah, he named them! The dark sword is Odium and the lighter blade is named Auxilium. (Latin names, by the way!)
