The WOVEN A to Z Challenge: F is for Fargut!

I dedicate this A to Z Challenge to Tina Downey, one of the A to Z Challenge founders and one of the brightest bloggers who sadly left us last year. Harder still, she was in a secret support group that I'm part of. The best way I can honor Tina, who was excited about and never had the opportunity to read my debut, I've teamed up with Father Dragon to present short bios and character portraits from Woven. I'll write the bios and all art is created by Al Diaz. I hope you enjoy this visual tribute to our friend, Tina.

F is for Fargut

A mountain man who travels the land, Fargut is always on the lookout for a trade and a hearty meal. He is burly and sports an unkempt beard and brown hair, and he has azure eyes. Few have ever made his acquaintance since he likes to scavenge trading goods in the haunted City of Westmine. He takes pride in his gluttony and is rumored to be an eccentric.
 
Tomorrow: G is for Gleesel

  1. He was a friendly sot, though!
    I see a hint of dwarf in the drawing.

  2. Sounds like a definite eccentric to me :) A rugged individualist.

  5. Oh DPK, he was a funny one. I'm going to have to do a re-read soon. I miss them. I still can't get over how stunning these illustrations are. Go. Dragon.

    I can't wait to see the rest of your April posts. Hugs Sir David. Eva

  7. Seems like a pleasant enough chap though. Give him a burger and I bet he talks your ear off!
    Kinda reminds me of me! ;)

  9. The Fargut name fits him if he likes to eat.

  13. Aptly named, that Fargut. He was an interesting character in Woven.

  15. As soon as I saw the word Fargot I had a pretty good idea what to expect and I was real close. Well done.
