If this is too much "me", could a mod lock it? I already feel like I am taking up so much space. :oops: I'm just not very good at writing so I tell my stories through drawings and descriptions.

These first drawings will be in chronological order. I rescanned some of them to get better picture quality and detail. After the first batch, the order may be off, but I will say where they go.

His first name is Michael. I haven't settled on a last name yet.
He is a C.I.A. Operative, and the chief agent in charge of Operation Blank Yellow.

Brief history:
-Born into an Italian American crime family.

-Son of the head of the mafia on the east coast.

-All American H.S. Football star.

-Out of spite, he shunned his families life style and opted to join the Marines out of H.S. (Also turning down lucrative college scholarships) in the hopes of joining the F.B.I..

-Stayed in the Marines for 12 years, mostly in Force Recon and intell, reaching the rank of Gunnery Sergeant.

-Even with his stellar service record, the F.B.I. would not take him, because of his families ties to organized crime.

-The C.I.A. offered him a position, as no major conflict of interest would arise from his family connections, as the C.I.A. does not preform domestic operations or cases.

-Unknown circumstances brought him onto a case involving MASS homicides in or around religious areas or artifacts on a global scale.

-Shortly after his arrival on the case, it was upgraded from classified to top secret/eyes only and given the random two word case file name Blank Yellow.

-His mother left his father after thier last son turned 18.

-He has an older brother, who is poised to take his father's place and a younger brother who is about as smart as he is homicidal. Considered a liability to the family, he is also to dangerous too be kicked out of it and his father and mother would not tolerate his unnatural death. He does prove useful from time to time.

-Has two sisters, one older and one a year younger. The older sister ran away when she was 15 and despite her fathers and Micheal's best efforts she hasn't been found. Some think she is dead. The younger sister followed in Micheal's footsteps right into the Marines, but going to and finishing college first. She chose to stay in the Corp. She has reached the rank of Colonel and is commander of the Operations support branch of Blank Yellow, at Micheal's request.

This is Mike in his days with Force Recon. On a classified op. There is a female in this shot, but so far she is an unknown. She may have been Mike's first contact with his future employers, the C.I.A.. The other Marine is unnamed, but is still in the Marines and is a good friend.

This is Mike's fourth Blank Yellow case of this type. A small town in rural Russia had it's entire population murdered and stacked naked in the middle of the town. The DDO of C.I.A. had a sister and a niece, that were in the town visiting a pen pal that the niece had made. They were killed in the slaughter.
Mike is surveying the scene when a figure comes from behind and speaks only these words; "We are not all killers." and then vanishes.

Mike visiting his wife's grave on the anniversary of her death. He will visit the grave site every year on the same date until the day he dies. His gun is drawn because he has been attacked during the visit several times.

That's just fucking brilliant, that is. And an actually good story? What is this supposed to be? Quality?

These are N.S.A.s two lead agents in their own investigation. They have crossed paths with the C.I.A. several times. The file name for their case is unknown.
The man was an Army Ranger and the woman is an ex Philadelphia detective.

The blades, knifes and swords that the different characters carry are not mandated or issued by their agencies, but a direct response to the "Angels" close quarters combat style, thier own use and preference for blade weapons and their sometimes unwillingness to die from several clips full of bullets.

That guy is fucking huge.

Also, the visit to the grave is quite touching.

The size of that one NSA fruitcake, plus his durability and preference for close combat just conjured up the mental image of him in a suit of Astartes armor with a bolter levelled at an angel, about to give him a good old battlefield execution for imitating Sanguinus. But then again, my brain does fucked up things. Awesome stuff, Havok, I'm keeping my eyes peeled for more.

I think more it's the girl is tiny and petite. Which makes the man look even larger.

Don't you bring your reasoned logic and opinion in here! *shakes fist*

It makes perfect sense, but I'd rather imagine the NSA dude as being really, really tall. Really tall.

Just another cover idea.

Being Italian, Micheal was raised very religiously. However, his life and career have not done much to help him maintain his faith. His mind does not believe, but his heart has a hard time letting go.

I tried to represent the overshadowing religion has had on his life. Not very subtle, I know.

What does "FR" stand for and which nation were the black ops rivals working for? China? Germany?

Ok, I love the little brother :lol: :lol: :lol:
His older brother's eyes look weird tho... rather like the way X-Men Gambit's eyes are drawn. May want to lighten up the shading there.

Some history...

"For eons they fought. They could barley remember why. Countless numbers of the winged ones. There were some who remembered the "The Father" and some who remembered "The Adversary". That was how the division was made. There were even whispers of other names, but they were thought only to be ancient legend and falsehoods of the enemy.

What the winged ones were sure of was the battle. The glory of a victory, the anger in defeat and concession. The euphoria and the excitement. For eons they fought.

One day though, everything changed. No one is sure what happened. A slight distraction possibly. To much arrogance of skill. Whatever the reason, a blow was struck.

There was no shield to deflect it as before. No sword, ax, spear or mace to parry the blade and a blow was struck.

For the first time in forever, a winged one had fallen. Answers were never found. The mate of the fallen did the unthinkable and struck down the one that had struck down her beloved. Unarmed and grieving, she was felled.

These were the first to fall. In the millennia that followed, the once proud winged ones, who had once been countless, had been reduced to only the millions. "The Father" and "The Adversary" were all but forgotten, replaced by only the lust for revenge.

In this time though something new had come to pass. Something that the winged ones, in their blood lust did not notice. Humans."

The first Fallen

As it stands, this is out of Blank Yellow canon/continuity as I haven't decided if I want super heroes in this universe or not. HOWEVER there is a full origin, back story and nemesis for this character... The Praetorian!!

This is just a silly little scene I sketched at lunch today. The scene itself has some back story as well.
