Character: Reaver by MattX16 Character: Reaver by MattX16
Drawn by :iconcsimadmax:

One of my characters used in the (hopefully) upcoming comic or video The Damned and Forgotten.

Species: Griffin

Faction: The Carnies (Former Leader), Neutral

Signature Weapon(s): Flintlock Pistol and Magical Cane

Bio: Leader of the once feared Carnies, a gang consisting of Steampunk and Circus/Carnival themed outfits, Reaver started out as the ringleader of the darkest carnival of horror. He would steal the souls of his victims with the use of the red gem on top of his cane. Years went on and the townsfolk finally stopped his madness by tearing down (and burning) him and his carnival to the ground. Legend has it that if the gem was to be put on the tombstone of Reaver, He and his Dark Carnival will rise again! Unfortunately some unlucky bastard did this, bring Reaver back to life along with his army of carnies. The Damned stopped his carnival but Reaver escaped before he was killed. He now makes a living selling weapons and upgrades in the Deadlands to anybody (including The Damned) who is willing to buy, in hopes that he can bring back his carnival of horror.

This character is based off of Ludwig Von Tokkentakker from Carnevil, Steampunk Foster from Killing Floor, and Reaver from the Fable Games.
He is styled like Griffins from MLP: FiM. I'm also using his as a somewhat mascot of my videos on Youtube

that name...he needs a small black heart tattoo on his cheek. and he needs a poster behind him with steam pipes coming out of his top hat saying "Reaver IS Industry!" that or there needs to be a scene where you're leaving his house an' there's a painter in there, an he says "You really think my butt looks like that?" *gunshot*. basically his name makes me think he's going to be a narcissistic egotistical prick. so if he's not, don't blame me blame fable 2/fable 3.

Sort of reminds me of Reaver from Fable 2 and 3, moe specifically 3, and that bio sounds a lot like that old arcade game...... what's it called again...? CKarnevil I think?

Edit: just read more of the description, happy to know I was spot on!
