My entry for the Ava’s Demon contest (which is Here if anyone wants to check it out). I had so much fun working on this!
This is Margo. He’s essentially a liar. His powers appear to allow him to stop the progression of time and it’s effects upon his host. But in reality, it’s closer to denial. Like treating the symptoms rather than the cause.
If his powers were focused on a disease for example, the illness would not seem to progress and would not appear to be aggravated by anything that would normally be too difficult or exhausting for the host to manage, but the damage would still be being done, the illness would still be worsening and the body far worse off for the fact that it’s limits are being ignored. Margo’s power over the host is decreased for every time the host speaks though, and he can’t deny anything that was already there, so he can only “stop” it, rather than reverse it.
His tattoos symbolise that you can’t see the problems or limitations, you can’t speak of them, you can’t “listen” to the signs. But it doesn’t change the fact that they exist, he’s just essentially pretending that they don’t.
He’s arrogant and lacking empathy or compassion, not to mention the fact that he’s bossy and has no sense of humour, so he’s basically not a lot of fun. He also tends to think he’s “helping”, when he’s generally just imposing his opinion without it being requested. I don’t think we’d get along very well to be honest XD.
