Inking in Sai is a dream. Used it for this and the one before, and I'm never using PS to ink again lol.
This is Kot, known only as "Kettleson" outside of Aheya due to his late mother Kettle's renowned influence on political relations with the Deru and the Sea Wolves. These two groups erroneously characterize Kot and his family as Aheyan royalty and vie for their favor and allegiance. Recently the Deru have invited him to their country (as a political hostage), which is met with little interest. Rightly Kot asserts such things have nothing to do with him.
Aheyan life is substantially more primordial and harsh than that of other peoples of the world, and as such, Kot is occupied with community and survival. He is quiet and pro-active, as well as a diplomatic speaker, due to the misplaced importance put upon him by other countries.
