Foreign Soldier (illustrated by Max Rugers)

While Cluracan is in Aurelia, a Foreign Soldier tells an innkeeper that the Carnifex is planning on selling the citizens of Aurelia into slavery to cover the debts of the Church treasury. The innkeeper then tells some of his customers this shocking news, which quickly spreads throughout the city.

This is one of the several rumors circulating through Aurelia causing a revolt against Carnifex Carys XXXV.

What the citizens of Aurelia do not know is that this Foreign Soldier, and the other people who started the rumor, were really Cluracan in disguise attempting to prevent the alliance between Aurelia and the Plains Folk.

This Foreign Soldier appears in Sandman # 52, on page 20, panel 4.

Max did an awesome job with this portrait. I really like the detail work on the soldier’s face. He definitely looks battle worn. I also like the orange background. It creates an interesting contrast to the soldier.

Max also drew a neat sketch of the character on the back of the Foreign Soldier.
