Luliette lives a very different life from Idan. Born the daughter of Elouise Lecroux, one of the most influential barons of Auleanne, she lives in the high towers of the city, overlooking waterways and red roofs.

At the very beginning of the story, she's going to run into some trouble with the fearless Watchers, an order of guardians sworn to protect the free cities of the Five Nations.

And, on the topic of Watchers, let's have a look at the two who get involved with Luliette's shady business in the waterways of Auleanne.
Antonnio - The prime of the Watchers in Auleanne, he is one of the most respected men in the city. Maybe getting a little old for his post though.
Conceptual outlines, colors, and final design for Antonnio, prime of the Watchers.
Tristan - A younger, inexperienced Watcher, who earned his position through fancy words and nepotism, rather than hard work.
Final design for Tristan.
Elouise Lecroux - Luliette's mother. A shrewd stateswoman who built up her household from the ground.

And last but certainly not least, Celestine - Luliette's older sister!

In addition to fleshing out the current characters and continuing work on scriptwriting, I've also started to work on how the dialogue in the game will be displayed.
Below is an mock-up gif that displays chatheads and a dialogue chatbox whenever the player engages in dialogue with another conversation (it may be slightly creepy - don't worry, I was just having some fun, this isn't a horror game):
And so that means we've also gotten started on chatheads - here is our first!

And that's all for now!
There's a lot more stuff regarding storytelling and scriptwriting going on behind the scenes, but it's rather difficult to present that in these logs without spoiling anything - unless I were to take a screenshot and then blur everything out. I think I'll leave it be.
We may skip out on a log the next week as there's going to be more of a focus on writing. The first Act for both protagonists are fully drafted, and I have laid out the core story beats for the second Acts! Very exciting stuff, we'll be back with more art content soon.
