Okay, not REALLY. Or maybe. Koda's considered a barbarian by many of the domestic sorts, big lynx that he is. And Nym is...sometimes a thief. If the target deserves it. He's actually got some ethics as well. It's just such a respected fantasy motif that we can go with it, right?
It looks like Nym's spotted something interesting, but dangerous. Koda might be assessing the best strategy, if it's something out of his realm of experience. It looks like they're both on some desert adventure, Nym's still in his dancer costume from a previous piece, (or maybe he just liked the gold and kept it) and that's certainly a bit south for a Siberian lynx. Certainly quite a bit new to see there!
MariLimmy did an amazing job with this., It's such a fun composition, and they really brought Nym to life in great chemistry with Koda. They look like a good classic adventuring pair!
