YAAAY I finally figured out a reference sheet for my Mandatory peeps! Each one will vary, Phantascope's
a bit more complex due to his two (three?) kinds of magic, but here we are! Thanks to Stitched-Raven
for the idea of the white boxes behind the character too ~ Due to him learning the black magic that is both taboo to mages and verified subjects of Media, he's learned to delude and mask his aura to others, but also be able to take their magic, as well.
I also am putting in bios again...and didn't paint him lightly in his unfortunately. Beware this dark kitty, he bites! He carries his verified name Phantascope—
given by the council—
but was removed from being an approved monitor long before the main series begins. After he was exiled from his former home in Clowder City, he was ripped apart by Signal, Video's father, who allowed Audio, Video's mother, to abandon his body at the pool within the Unending Labyrinth. He was forgotten by many and erased from most public records after that, but victims of his attacks still remember him well and wonder if he's really truly gone...
We learn more his fate in Straight to Video
, Strong Hearts Are Mandatory's second book, which reveals more about his backstory too.
He is the main of Mandatory's planned Prequel, Of Events Prior, where we follow his path to finding the cube, training with his mentor, Wisdom, and so much more with others we've seen in the animations and art I've uploaded like Ochroid, Calotype, Photo, Studio, Pictures, Audio, Signal, and so forth.
He's a delightful character I always have fun sharing more of, and I'm thrilled of what you all will think for the upcoming book.
His bio here will be appearing in the Lore Book I plan to make after the third book, Stars of the Silver Screen, is released. It'll include more of his history, personality, magic, and connections to other characters that I'm delighted to reveal, but for now, here he is! owo I hope you like him!
