Aurelian Citizen # 3 (illustrated by Kai Martin)

When Clurican arrives in Aurelia he is brought before Carnifex Carys XXXV as an envoy of Faery.

As he walks through the chamber to approach the Carnifex he notices a large group of people on either side of the walkway all asking the ruler for his favor or judgment in a dispute.

This is one of those men. He has been waiting many months with his petition, hoping to get it granted.

What is the petition? That is not revealed, only that he’s been waiting an exceedingly long time.

This man appears in Sandman # 52, on page 8, in panel 1.

This is a great portrait from Kai. I really like his approach to this character. He decided that this citizen of Aurelia was a woman. I like that she is holding a document and shouting, which mirrors the character in the published comic. You can feel the frustration of the character in this portrait.
