French Soldier # 4 (illustrated by Lukas Ketner)

In Thermidor (published in Fables And Reflections) Louis-Antoine St. Just and Maximilien Robespierre are trying to recover the head of Orpheus for their own political gains and in hopes of destroying all “magic” from the world, bringing about an age of reason.

This French Soldier is one of the soldiers who apprehend Johanna Constantine as she returns to her room.

He appears in Sandman # 29, on page 6, in panel 6.

This is a fantastic portrait from Lukas. I really appreciate that he not only gave this character a less than respectable expression on his face, but he also presented him in a way that made him appear dirty and disheveled, which gives the character a less than honorable appearance. This is completely appropriate for this portrait since Johanna is trying to rescue Orpheus from people with ill intent.
