Poor Aaerus is one of my most tortured characters... if you're unfamiliar with his backstory, basically he was in a life or death battle against an ice element dragon, Eissturm, and he ended up losing. Eissturm is very cruel and cold-hearted (no puns intended) and decided to tear off Aaerus's wings rather than kill him outright. Aaerus was eventually found within an inch of his life and had his wings reattached by a metal element dragon, but the whole experience left him incredibly bitter and vengeful.
The title is a direct reference to the Adonis flower (or Pheasant's Eye), which means "sorrowful remembrance." Rather than drawing all the flowers solid, I left them empty then filled them with the "memory" of Aaerus's wings before his encounter with Eissturm. It's kinda like negative space but with flowers.
Aaerus is (c) me!
