Just one more profile for Black Gold left! I wanna do profiles for the "mains" of each of the top 5(....6) long term comics. "Rich Ethan" is next, then Saving "i.pity.mé" for last: it's Hara, Park, and Kwiet, so then right onto posting comic pages again!
A little bit on 'Black Gold': the magic featured is biological, meaning they can manipulate specific body parts, Usually only just one part: heart, eyes, skin, etc..
One can only be born with it ("birth rite"). And those born into it their body part, are more powerful than those who "learn" a new part.
Users are universally called Mags, and different regions have different nicknames: Magir, Bodies, or etc.. Ones birth rite is what Mag one is referred to as: Nation is a Heart Mag.
"Spells" (how one can manipulate said body part), is referred to as "works" or "jobs".
If one "learns" a new part, it can only be of one that connects to one's birth right.
Example: Nation's birth rite are hearts, he can learn blood works, but not skin works.
Each Mag has a community ("body") that takes responsibility and have rules for their members. The most deadly are the Hearts.
Nation, 28yrs old, a son of a freed black ex-slave and a born free black/native woman. He wants to buy a whole city as far away as possible from white americans to protect his family. Things get complicated as he realizes he feels more for Amor than he thought.
At 8 or 10, his dad is the one who helped him accept he was a boy, and encouraged him to live as such.
His worst thing in life was being pregnant, which he only agreed to do for his first wife.
It was after the birth of his kid that he physically transitioned: A permanent spell involving a genital magir and birthing magir (both hard to come by and expensive, but they both owed him a debt). Instead of a period, he grows the cock he would've had if his body was born male. That and his breast were all he had done, (cause, "these're ma's hips" ).
His eyes fluctuate between hazel and gray, but turns pink+red and expand when using his heart magic.
He was always on the anti-social side, but became Irreversibly sociopathic thanks to his first wife and the wars he fought.
Fashion would be classified as goth western.
He's a secret fugitive of his Mag community, cause he uses it in a way that is taboo: which is why most people mistaken what Mag he is. Meaning he's a "kill on site" to other Heart Mags.
If that's too much sharing, let me know! I am only sharing a fraction of that publicly right now ;)
