Uh-oh. Saavedro does not look happy. I'd back up if I were you, Cyan...

Cyan, for the uninitiated, is the character I always imagine when I'm playing a Myst game.

I must admit, this piece was rather inspired by a fanfic being written by :iconhalley42: In her story "The Stranger" is a little robot (an AWESOME little robot, by the way!), but in reading it I couldn't stop imagining Cyan! This is probably the part where Saavedro and The Stranger (or in this case, Cyan) make it to Narayan only to find that it's not quite what Saavedro had hoped...

... And as all Exile fans know, Saavedro can be a dangerous guy when he's angry...

Dude! Go read Halley's fanfic right now! It's one of the best fanfics for anything that I've read for a long time! Find it in the Myst/Riven section of [link] . It's called "Between the Lines".

Great expressions! Cyan, by now you should know to never stand too close to an unhinged, vengeful nut who’s miffed and is in possession of a thick, metal bound tome. XD I’d start looking for a place to curl up and hide if I were you.

In the fic this was inspired by there was nowhere for him to go.:XD: They'd just ridden the gondola to the end of the line and discovered, not Narayan, but the electronic wall of the game itself.

It scared me
Thus: avoid angry looking Saavedro!!

I have my own male persona-guy for the Myst games, but I have to admit, after looking at your other art, Cyan is starting to worm his way into my heart. XD Run before Saavedro clonks you!!!

Salvadro is so going to beat that kid's head in. Srsly XD

Poor, poor angry man.

With his doinkdoink of doom... I mean, you'd expect that from the guy that plays Chucky the doll.

ArtoveliHobbyist General Artist
Yeah, he does in the fic (except that the Stranger is a robot in the fic).
Rose-Vicious's avatar
Ok. Now. Robot. That is just plain weird XD

Man. Hes definitely one of my favorite villains though <3 You portray him brilliantly

Hmm... will he use the Releeshahn Linking Book, or will he use his cave-man hammer like he did on Rowan (my Myst character)?
Artoveli's avatar

He uses both in the game!

In the fanfic he uses the book.

You have a Myst character too? Awesome!

Looks like he's pondering wheter to smite Cyan with his "Heavy looking book" or not. ;)

Yay! Saavedro! Poor guy. He needs his PEZ.

. . . don't ask. It's a fanfiction I wrote.

I still LOVE Cyan! For some reason he reminds me of Milo Thatch from those Atlantis movies that Disney made. Except without the glasses. His facial expressions are soooo adorable.

Cyan's. Not Milo's. Yeah.

I've seen the pez! I'd forgotten all about it...

Saavedro's PEZ, Gehn's opera, what do Sirrus and Achenar have????

Anyway, I'm really glad you like Cyan! It's so much fun to draw these comics...I've got to draw more!
