Furb’s Vision of Clavicus Vile (and Rei takes his clothes off again NWS)
December 7, 2017
My mind tends to run off with open world games. I’m of the mind that I’m the one building the story, not every character is going to experience it the same way, and there’s no harm in bending the given story to tailor it to whatever your character experiences. And so I have images in my head of metaphysical beings and whatnot that may or may not mesh with whatever.
So I tend to hide things like my version of Clavicus Vile, because my version of Clavicus Vile isn’t like a lot of people’s that I’ve seen. And I know there’s a tendency in certain fandumbs for people to get super duper mad when a depiction of a beloved character is not up to spec with their own individual imaginings.
In my mind, he’s a bit of a mythologically incorrect faun; all the goat stuff is in the face, and he’s less about keeping shepherds safe and fucking everything that moves and more about being a capricious asshole who’s like that one kid who’s really smart but whose brain needs all the stimulation so they do things like play semantics games until you want to throttle them. He probably likes to fuck, too, but I imagine sheep are off the table.
Here have a goat-lookin’ dude!
And if you hated him, have some bonus Rei Ginsei pics. I painted him some abs and baked him a new normal map because he needed abs, and Vitruvia doesn’t have them. I am the change I want to see!
