This guy is your standard old English war veteran, the sort that has a walrus moustache and a pompous attitude. He likes the thought of gaining more turf over the Native Americans for the benefit of expanding the settlement this being so he quietly sides with the Captains suggestions, but still will not needlessly plunge his troops into a battle that will cause major loss on their side. He has a respect for the Lieutenant with whom he is on good terms, even if he cannot understand why he insists on remaining a lower rank, and humours his efforts for peace if it means he doesn’t have to worry so much about attacks from the savages on the settlement.
Webster is 58 years old and his likeness is based on Brendan Gleeson, aka Prof. Moody in Harry Potter..

There are only a few more characters to develop like this now (Colonel Webster, Lance Corporal Barnes and Warrior Cheveyo).
I have written an outline of the story and handed it over to my lovely boyfriend, who is by far a much better writer than me, and together we are scripting up the actual dialogue/panel/pages for the comic!! Enlisting the help of my boyfriend to write the comic allows me to concentrate on drawing (the part that I'm much suited for) and I can be roughing up pages and finalizing them while he continues to write! Exactly how it would work within the industry!!
So, shortly you shall see more than just character studies! Next I shall be able to tell you my story!

Meet Private Thomas Hayworth, he is a fresh faced 23 year old soldier just out of the academy. The care of Newfoundland during the winter months, when our story takes place, is his first assignment. The story will be narrated by characters of mirroring status within their community, whether it be British army or Native American tribe, and Tom is going to be one of the narrators to tell the story from the Brit's point of view. He will be the one to introduce the story to us, as he is new to the situation in Newfoundland we will learn as he learns.
Although Tom is at the bottom rung of the party of soldiers that have been sailed to the island, he is enthusiastic and cheery, though slightly impressionable and naive, but his heart is in the right place!
His likeness is based on actor Sean Murray, aka Timothy McGee in NCIS.

Nashoba is like a mentor, someone you can go to for advice, and is much more approachable than his brother. He spends much more time amongst the tribe's people, and is a fair man with a very 'innocent until proven guilty' attitude.
He wears more decoration (a breast plate, wolf totem and necklaces) as his position is more ceremonial than the Alpha's, who is an active leader. All this also associates him more with the Chief and the Elders, who also wear decoration, making him the tribe's link to the 'wolf-warriors'.
The ranking tattoo on his arm shows his status as being below his brother, but higher than the other members.
Nashoba is Choctaw for Wolf, he is roughly 38 years old and his likeness is based on a very young August Schellenberg (Randolph from Free Willy, and Sitting Bull from Bury My Heart At Wounded Knee.)
