Well, about the Chapter 5: Expedition
, we are going to discover more about the characters that we already meet so far, besides, new characters are going to make a debut in this chapter, a bunch of them. But one in particular is an special case, and its because he shares a deep bond with one of them, this lead to a question: is he gonna appear soon in this timeline? is he gonna be involve in all this future business? is he an enemy or an ally?
SALIOT FIRST DESIGN
as you can see, the character has been created since long time ago (with a lot of flaws in the design) but he keeps some unique characteristics and concept in his design, to be similar to Latios.
Some time later I made a better look on his body and his face, but I didnt find the way of fixing his previous clothing, it wouldnt look good in this new design... For a few time he was like that, so he couldnt participate in any story naked.
But fortunately, I made him a clothes that fit him better, but I was still not convinced about some details, the colors, the design, he still looks very odd, and not in the good way. Soon his last skecth will be shown before his final design finally makes appearance in the story.
One thing that I have clear about this character is that he was a BIG ISSUE, his only pruporse was being the perfect boyfriend, nothing else, he didnt have personal motives, dreams, problems, or even toughts, for a long time his existence was only to be the perfect boyfriend of somebody else, and when that character sease to exist, Saliot didnt have a pruporse anymore, he didnt have a personality to show, didnt have anything that makes him shine. I didnt notice it at first but, only when I start to read the comics about the Young Avengers and I see how Hulkling was treated most of the time by the writer, just like a love interest of the main hero, that his only featured characteristic is being the perfect boyfriend, thats where I saw the problem. Saliot was suffering the same issues than Hulkling.
So what happens now with Saliot?
I hope to not make him fall in that category again, he will be a more complete character, with his own personality, thoughs and even own traumas that will hunt him for several years just like the others characters that survive that mess. Just avoid to be another Teddy, because he could be adorable and all, but most of the time he is not a character that could stand by his own, and Saliot need to stand by his own.
