The Desert Sun
Re-using another D&D design for ZOCC ^^; Ah, I am bad! But I tought Taj could fit right in with the crowd from Leisel >3>;
OH and I should have mentioned this when I posted the sketch, but I totally freaking stole his hair and jewellery from Bonten, a character in the most excellent manga Amatsuki (read that shit!). It's a bit different in this version, but still fundamentally derivative. So, credit where credit's due! >3>;
Quicknotes: Taj is the prince of a very puny nation that borders onto Leisel, who discovered that his father had made a pact with (probably) a shadow and planned to destroy Leisel with a magical plague. Taj conspired with his mother and teacher to assassinate the king, but when the deed was done, it was blamed on him and he was forced to flee.
In combat, he's basically a sandbender, hence the magic above ^^
