The Pelkern Cycle had an earlier phase that was based on a Sci-Fi premise. The coolest part of that idea were the elite warriors called Strikers who were trained to break through the force fields of cities. There was a lot that didn’t work with that particular story iteration, so I eventually shifted away from those ideas, but one of my favorite concept drawings is from that phase. This is a concept drawing depicting Sol as a Striker (also, his name was Paul then). He is holding a lantern filled with bio-luminescent flowers.
