Day 2753 of Night Guard (The final journal entry of General Kozmotis Pitchiner)
The Fearlings have won. I have no strength left to resist their tantalizing trickery. If anyone comes by this journal, please, don’t let my daughter know what I have become. Tell her… I died valiantly.
I pray to the Guardians, please, protect my daughter and all the other children to come into the world, from the evils of the world. Including me.
I don’t have much time left… They’re here for me—
I thought Pitch was a great character, then I read his backstory and my poor heart. This is a little different than the canon story that William Joyce wrote, since Pitchiner wasn’t writing when he decided to succumb to the Fearlings, but I thought it would be sort of sweet, if he kept a military journal at least and wrote a bit everyday about the state of his prisoners and any changes.
I wanted to depict him as closely to the canon as possible, with the same sort of features, but with a more human aura. Also, since he’s part of the Golden Army during the time of the Constellations, he has the insignia of Cygnus.
I need to draw the other characters too. ugu, my poor hand.
