Medicine Man

For years now the Medicine Man has been the sole responsible for the village's physical and spiritual well being. He kept the traditional methods of mixing ingredients and brewing remedies alive while adding new recipes and procedures of his own. He lived during a great time for discoveries, new herbs and chemical compounds appeared to be discovered daily. The future held so many new possibilities for those seeking alchemical knowledge that all one had to do was reach out and grab it, which he did assiduously. Yet, instead of searching for fame and glory as many other initiated did, he chose to remain in his post in the village. He found meaning there, purpose, he had a reason to use his knowledge. Many will argue if what he did was wrong or right, if he truly had reach his full potential. All I know is that he was happy, and that that was enough for him.

If they're a medicine man, why don't they wear clothes? I can think of several medicines and diseases that could cause significant harm to the body if come into direct contact to skin. Yet outside of what looks like a single scar on their jaw, their skin seems as flawless as that of a newborn babes.

At first I thought his eyes were his nostrils and his ear was his eye and I thought ‘awwww’ then I realized x’D not so aww- but amazing as always!

I love how so much of your creatures are ambiguously mammalian or human-like. I think it would be really cool to see your take on a dragon using that design philosophy. A big dragon-shaped critter but naked and very mammalian, maybe it was once a human, who can say!
