Juelyae the Corrupted

By SnowSultan
Janus Rodolpho was a former minor lord of Ronail and considered to be a hero by many for his leadership during times of strife and sacrifice. Now known as Juelyae, he is literally a vile shell of his former self, retaining little but his prominent teeth after sacrificing his humanity to the demon lord Kofaevae in return for cursed gold and power.

He doesn't look very pleased with the measly four coins he's being paid to deliver what is surely a decree that would have any honorable king facing the gallows, but it's still enough to purchase his loyalty and the betrayal of his kin.

Anyone familiar with American politics should recognize this bug-eyed bastard, otherwise be glad you don't. Rendered in DAZ Studio, postwork in Photoshop. Thanks as always for taking a look!

Fantastic character and absolutely recognizable! Real life inspiring fantasy, I love it. :)
SnowSultan's avatar

Haha, glad to hear it! Yeah I'm really starting to enjoy making fantasy based on real life...not as many people appear to get my references as I would like, but it's still fun. :) It's also easier than coming up with completely original characters because some of these people are so comically awful that all you have to do is give them horns or a medieval robe and you've got a fine fantasy villain. ;)

Horrifically gross and incredibly cool, wonderful work!

Thank you very much! I like how he came out and it wasn't *too* much work for a change. :)

Get 'em!!!

Horrific monstrosity... And of course, any atrocity can be bought and excused for these morons.

Haha, I used four photos of the real guy as reference and they were all as scary as this turned out to be. ;) Every day I wonder if the real conspiracy we ought to be looking at is that an actual demonic invasion is the cause of this current insanity.

Background story is very good, short and capacious! His appearance is expressive! Hope he will play his role in your story :)

Thanks! I don't know if he'll play much of a role except maybe get his head lopped off at some point, but we'll see. ;)

Is there any chance for the former lord to regain his soul??

In RL as well as in notRL?
SnowSultan's avatar

My story tries to mirror real-life, just exaggerated (a lot). :) If the RL one regains his, this one will too - but I am definitely not counting on that.

Makes it hard to know what type of emoticon to reply with... A laughing one or a crying one?

I think I'll go with :squee:

I like the eyeroll one myself, if Facebook had it, I'd be using on about 99% of the posts I read there.

LOL, hopefully he'll end up in a dungeon soon and we'll all be better off. ;) Thanks!
