Oh it is definitely his good side. And there are indeed more facial hair. I think that I haven't seen any art displaying his scars that seemed nice so far...

I know! I'm quite a busy contributor to that list But thanks for reminding me. Just added another track last night that I feel suits him
Ah, I'm sorry, of course you contributed a lot. And I remember a few exchanges now. Sorry for being crap at remembering who said what. My brain is stuffed with too many things at the same time.
This Night! I like this song. Keep adding!

And concerning your fan fiction... Sharing exposes to critics, but on the other hand it is always nice and motivating when you are getting feedbacks. Up to you!

The scars are such a big part of what I like about his look, I guess I just feel like not showing them is a wasted opportunity But yeah, I haven't actually seen any fanart that did it well, either. Would love to see some official concept art of him unmasked, but none exists as far as I know.

This has probably already been discussed loads before, but I always wondered how Arcann feels about his scars. I get the impression that they really don't bother him, probably because he never brings them up in conversation and because of a few lines in that last romance letter ("I no longer need to hide"), which indicates to me that the mask is mostly about other things (performing the various roles as a weapon, prince, and emperor that he has adopted to protect/hide his true self).

And no worries! I don't post nearly often enough to expect to be recognised

I'll keep adding to the list! And maybe some day I'll be brave enough to share the fanfic

We discussed it a bit a few months ago if I remember well. And it has most probably been discussed before I started hanging around here too. But we can go back to it.

It is unclear how he feels about them but he is not covering them anymore at least. I would personally not expect him to be ashamed about them per se. He might have a specific relationship with them because of how he got them, but then it is distinct from any appearance concern.

A lot of fan fictions show Arcann as rather ashamed of his scars and his global appearance and sure that he could not win someone's heart because of them. I stand among those who do not think that it is the case, which does not mean that his scars could not have another painful meaning for him and potentially be a reminder of his own past foolishness.

Do you know the Brothers short story? It tells the story of when he got his scars. The POV is Thexan and I really like it a lot. There are some interesting things mentioned there. First, that the mask was specifically made to be inztimidating. Then, that Arcann, at that time, considered the loss of his arm ad his scars to be the first tribute needed on the path of greatness/approbation from his father/whatever else he was chasing and that there would be other sacrifices (he probably did not expect his brother to be the next one...).

Thank you.

I actually did not create the name. Aygo truly invites Black Sabacc to the base when we reach influence 10 with him, he tells us about it in a mail. 😁

I.. have a lot of catching up to do (reading)
Logged in today for the first time in.. omg so long. I don't remember anything in my strongholds (decorations layout) and I don't even know anymore which characters have done what, and which romanced who. Was on one of my many SW's and had to go through all possible LI's for a fem sw until I realised she was with Arcann now.

I have a headache, I no longer know which of my characters supported who, killed who, saved who lmao.
