Necropolis Student # 1 (illustrated by Max Rugers)

In the fifth chapter of Worlds’ End, Petrefax recounts his tale to the others sitting around the table in the inn.

He began his story by saying that he would often spend his days in school staring out the window at the city of the Necropolis Litharge and dream about the worlds beyond the mountains.

As a result, he would sometimes get called out and made an example of in class.

This student was one of many who attended the same class as Petrefax. He sat directly in front of Petrefax and next to Lystra.

He appears in Sandman # 55, on page 4, in panel 7.

This is a fantastic portrait from Max. The bright yellow of his hair is a dramatic contrast to the blackness of the backgrounds and the paleness of this character’s skin. It is very pronounced and even more vibrant as a result of the starkness of the rest of the portrait.
