A short but sweet collection of 6 wacky Troika! Backgrounds including:

  • Skellington Birdfriend: a former mercenary who woke up from death sorrounded by (mostly) friendly birds and a picture of a person they've never met before
  • Hay-Haired Executioner: a hot tempered executioner who had a troublesome first job.
  • Mingo Monarch: the ruler of an accursed kingdom trying to save their subjects from the spell of the Mirror People.
  • Oscillatory Cosmonaut: a poor lightspeed traveller who was warped by the cosmos and is now capable of transcending space and time.
  • Unwilling Cacodemon: an heir to royalty who had their dream of nobility flustered by a magical helmet.
  • Abyss Crawler: a brooding explorer of the Void, extremely able to put up a fight, but kinda bad with people.

I skipped the intro and went straight to the backgrounds, which are absolutely lovely (and wonderfully weird, like most things Troika!), and wondered "which could have come first, the arts or the concepts?", so the way your art informs your writing is crystal clear! Congratulations.

Heya thanks so much :)) Super happy to read this!!

These are some truly wonderful backgrounds, thank you very much for making them! Really appreciate the whole “Silly edgelord, don’t shut people out” vibe of the Abyss Crawler. 🖤


Thank you so much, glad you liked them!! Kaidou from Saiki Kusuo was a major inspiration for this one (great comedy anime btw)


Yo, Vic, Mingo Monarch has "1 Purple Lens", shouldn't it be 1 Spell - Purple Lens ?

Badass work by the way

You're actually right, my mistake haha! Thanks so much!!


thanks ! :)
