2014 - 2015 ( AU OC)
I originally created Castelle as the Mad Hatter in what was going to be an early version of Almost Alice
The actual story never got written, but it was a spin-off on Alice In Wonderland,
the same as the comic was.
The very first drawing I made of him is no longer on this earth, but here is the first official reference for his design.
As you can see, he looks much rougher than how I draw him now, and wore a grey jacket, the Hatter's 10/6 hat (not drawn), and was very bloodstained/scarred, like a cringey Creepypasta OC.
Initially, it was his left eye that was missing, before I switched it to the right side accidentally and just kept it that way.
There are a few drawings from the next stage of his development I couldn't find, but in 2015 I started to develop him as an OC, not a fan character.
(Though I still called him Hatter for about a year and a half.)
