Blood and Desire by perditionxroad Blood and Desire by perditionxroad
My warden - Marius Amell, and a desire demon. My warden made a deal with the desire demon for blood magic abilities once before, he is easily.. persuaded by them.

EDIT: added print on society6, so just updating for those interested.

Oh the deal for Connor's well... freedom? 
I had one character do that, too... I am glad others took that choice, too ^^"

This is yet another great painting and your Marius is a very interesting character :3 I can also understand why he is tempted by desire demons (but are they really wondering why so few women make a deal with them? Really, they should offer male Chippenda- .... err... desire demons for the female audience :giggle:)

Yes... I really wanted the blood magic ability, even though I felt bad for sacrificing Connor's freedom. It was a turning point for my view on Marius though, made him a slight anti-hero; not always doing what was right, but what was necessary to end the Blight. haha no, you are not alone on that! :heart:

Thank you so much! You give me a great boost of confidence.
Also, I completely agree. I actually saw an art work of a male desire demon once that I thought was marvelous. Maybe in the next game they'll give us one. We didn't really get temptation from demons in Inquisition either, I'd love for the next game to have more demons tempt the hero again based on what they are (sloth, despair, and desire, and so on).

Haha, yes, my one Amell (that never made it to the endgame) was actually only thinking "who knows what it is good for? We might learn what motivates bloodmages and heck, whenever the demon gets back I am probably long gone and really... who cares?" *makes a deal* 

Oh, and I would totally not mind male desire demons ;3
And no... demons were not that tempting in DAI... there were more pressing matters at hand than getting tempted by demons I think XD 
But your picture is a great reminder of what demons can do even to the strongest of heroes :3

This is it, this is why I had Marius acquire blood magic. I made sure he never used his companion's blood and only his own to prove a point - too much power can corrupt regardless. A sword can be just as dangerous and drive one to evil as magic would, it's all about how to use it. So Marius used it to end the Blight. He remained forever haunted by what he had to sacrifice to get it (Connor), but at the end of the day Connor did what any Circle Mage would have been killed for by templars with no question. So he already sealed his fate from the start.

I am actually tempted to try my hand at a male desire demon now.
A future project, for sure!
And thank you :heart:

I remembered that I drew a male desire demon almost two years ago XD False Promises, False Dreams
Today I would draw him differently, but yeah, we need male desire demons. 

And I totally agree, no matter what kind of weapon, in the wrong hands it is deadly no matter what.
