Well, maybe not demand. I wanted to post this on my page but Google wouldn't let me add the picture. Serena offered to load it for me, but I decided to just post on the regular page. So here's your extra Thursday post. Hope you enjoy it.
Today we're going to discuss the origins of Sergei, the Siberian white tiger assassin. He's been described as close to 7 feet tall and favors a long black coat and a slouch hat, mostly to protect his albino's eyes from the sun. Where'd I get this mental image? Take a look at the photo up there. That's the Undertaker, long a staple of professional wrestling. I wanted to create a character who was imposing and scary, and man, is 'Taker scary. Picture all that black hair white and that's Sergei. As I've said elsewhere, I watch waaaaaaay too much television.
Fortunately, Sergei's character is evolving in a totally different direction. Like any good Russian, a poet's heart beats inside his chest. I don't think he'll be holding any cage matches or performing the Tombstone Piledriver on anyone anytime soon. But then, this story's taken a lot of odd twists and turns, so you never know. If Dwayne the Brahma bull shows up, or Stone Cold Steve the Texas rattlesnake, we might just have ourselves a smackdown. Only time will tell.
