Talisman: Calixte

Posted Dec 21, 2022, 5:20:46 AM UTC

What is Calixte's Talisman? 

Calixte's talisman is an interlinked series of beaded piercings, culminating in a metal, prosthetic ear tip. 


Why is Calixte taking it with him?

All of the bandits in Calixte's crew have a similar ear piece. Part of initiation was having the tip of your left ear cut off, which started as an homage to the crew's first leader, and just has bled down into the future generations of banditry. The other part is finding the metals and gems to make your ear piece. This process usually takes about a year and is highly personalized, so every one is a little different. So even if he could remove it, he wouldn't. It represents what he considers his life's greatest upswing.

      The other part I like about this talisman is the sound potential. It'd be just a pleasant little jingle, I think... Like a miniature wind chime.

    I love this idea, and you've executed it very well. Are the badges going on each of the little triangles that dangle from the earpiece?

      That's the plan! I thought it would be a good plan, and I can always add more triangles later if I need them. X3

    I like this piece, it's eye catching! The different styles of shading make the metallic texture stand out nicely.
