Conan battle-hardened and well-depicted with the tools of his trade in order to protect, defend, and provide for those entrusted to his charge!!! Art sure has a way with words through visual depictions!!!
Not meaning to disparage the visual impact or anything but due to something in the face and colors he looks more like a mulatto with a wig than the proto-celt/breton cimmerians are supposed to be. But then there's so much much art that Conan's look can be confusing sometimes...
