Alektos - Initial Concept by Thysane Alektos - Initial Concept by Thysane
Another of the Furies. The only reason this is a guy is because I just thought the design worked better that way. And besides, the female element still outweigh the male element two-to-one. Anyway, this guy is basically a cold torturer. His name literally means, in ancient Greek, "the unceasing" or "the implacable" (hence featureless mask).

If you fullviewed both this one and Tisiphone, you'll have noticed a similar motif adorning their forehead and left cheek below the eye. the forehead symbol is very story specific, so I won't give anything away on that part. The eye thing, however, is easier explained. The Furies were often described as having hollow eyes constantly dripping with blood.

Once again, listening to Trivium.
