Ash’s Kin # 1 (illustrated by Anna Hybsier)

In The Hunt, Vassily tells a tale to his granddaughter Celeste about a young man, also named Vassily, and how he left home to follow his heart and along the way met The Endless and found his future wife.

In the tale, Vassily, after journeying many days, decides to hunt for some food to fill his stomach. He finds a deer and chases her for many miles and just as he was about the leap for the kill a young girl pounced on the deer and broke it’s neck.

She took the deer back to her people, with Vassily following behind her.

Ash and her people lived in the heart of the woods. Vassily had never encountered so many of his people before.

As we, the reader, discover later in the story, Vassily and Ash, as well as her kin have the ability to transform into wolves.

This man is one of Ash’s tribe. Given his stature I am assuming he is the pack leader.

He appears in Sandman # 38, page 14, panel 7.

This is another great portrait from Anna. I like that he does not look fierce as you might except a man who can turn into a wolf may be. Anna also drew the portrait that makes him seem to give off an air of authority, as I could expect from a pack leader. I really like this one, especially given that the character in the comic is not as well defined as Anna’s portrait.
