This character was designed for the Everquest Gates of Discord expansion.
The inspiration for it came from Native American clothing and Japanese asymetrical bows.
The arrows on the back glow because they are magically imbued, and also indicate the rank and authority that this character has.
This character is also native to an enviroment that des not have light, so his eyes discern heat instead of color. Because of this, he can see thorough his eyelids when he travels to places that have light, and has sewn his eyelids shut to avoid being stunned by too much light entering his eyes during combat. The idea of a blind archer is also pretty cool. His stripped self inflicted scar tissue is colder then the surrounding healty skin tissue, which helps to form a type of camoflauge for heat sensing races.
