Welcome to my character portrait gallery

For anyone who is wondering, Wednesday became 'black Wednesday' for me because I cannot draw mid-week!
In fact I'm sure the rainforests mourn Wednesday too by the amount of paper I tear through in frustration... so this is a blog for all who know what like it is to regularly shout at their pencils
Oh yes it's also all about fictional characters plus interviews with them, yeah, that too :)

Ezra Canzerth

On first glance, Ezra appears quite the normal, studious looking lord, at 38 years of age and 6ft 1in tall you could be mistaken for thinking he is part of some pompous aristocracy. Yet the guise of a rich and etiquette-refined man is not one that lasts long. Dressed like a crazed wayward alchemist and far too buoyant for his years, as soon as Ezra moves or speaks his eccentricities ignite in a catalytic cascade.

He is however skilled in the art of alchemy and wealthy to boot. Being a noble son of the late Chauntz Canzerth he inherited half of the family fortune after a mysterious blaze at their holiday villa. Ezra’s boisterous composure sinks a little at the mention of his father.  

He bravely explains how the incident had its blessings, after their demise Ezra was able to associate with the Hale household and reacquaint with his younger half-brother Alyx. Estranged for most of their lives the two now work alongside one another. Ezra leaves Alyx to maintain the business whilst he liaises with affluent merchants and choice mercenaries who outsource rare ingredients.

He speaks passionately of Arian and her incurable sickness. With heart as large as his flamboyant personality he reveals the depth of his dedication and somehow makes finding a cure sound secondary to being by the woman’s side. It is clear he dearly loves his half-sister however his passion for her is borderline obsessive and breeches our comfort zone. We try not to ask further questions on the subject.

It is no surprise to learn that Ezra has never married; he reveals that his main focus has always been the magical arts. Ezra tells us he enjoys contriving new ways to combine weaponry, magic and alchemy. He invests a great deal of time into research and inventing new curiosities to sell on Alyx’s store. 

 Ezra certainly does like his technological toys, having global connections means he is always in possession of the latest inventions. He shows us an incomplete and rather pointless looking device; the only impressive part of which is Ezra’s enthusiasm for it.
