If you could clearly see the details of this work by Cyrza, Vincent's hand in slowly changing in the pale moon light revealing to the audience that he is far more than human. He has maintained some humanity, and dignity through the years all-the-while fighting the effects of an ever changing curse. If you'd care to know more about my character, and his story, please contact me.

Vincent is a character I created a very long time ago. Every great once in awhile I brush the dust off this project. Vincent was originally used in a storyline set in the Forgotten Realms world. His is a complex epic tale of a man trying to deal with a curse that has kept him alive for over two thousands years. The physical aspect of the curse hightens his magical abilities, which in turn allows him to appear of any age. The down-side to this is that "human" is no longer his natural appearance. When angered, etc. his body twists and reverts back to what the curse has made of him - a wolven humanoid with large bat-like wings. The mental and emotional aspects of this are the basis of his tale. He is not evil by nature, and as the years roll ever on Vincent has found that the curse is also evolving. To what end is unknown, but it has silently struck out to friends and loved ones "infecting" them as well. I've written a short story about his life, highlighting many of the critical events in a sort of journal entry format. It paints a firm picture, but remains unfinished.

He sounds lonely. :(

Loneliness is one of many battles fought each day. Vincent has lived well beyond any member of his natural family, and has also witnessed the passing of countless friends and their families, too. The ever-changing curse remains stableon one account - it will not let him truly die.

In this wonderful rendition by Anna Rigby (Cyzra on dA) we see a younger aspect of Vincent looking at the changes overcoming his hand in the moonlight.
