Taking a break from my freelance works to do a little painting and to explore some backstory of our Templars
Templar Sergeant Nico's life wasn't always an easy one. During his childhood, due to extreme poverty, he was sold by his own family into a life of slavery, bought by a large corporation to perform various types of hard labor. However, even at a young age, the boy Nico has such a remarkable spirit that even his brutal overseers show him such favor that'll eventually grant him his freedom.
Seen here in an oeyester mercury field during harvest, Chief Robotic Supervisor 87 is so enthralled by the gentle and kind behavior of the child slave that he can't help but put his guard programming to sleep and observe the curious boy.
