Hael Storm, fearless adventurer and leader of none other than The Venture League faction. What else could he be but a pirate? I bet you didn't know that once upon a time Hael was a female pirate named Gail Storm... This changed when we added Vanda to the line-up. Notice the various spellings of 'Hael' in the concepts - we were not sure how we wanted to spell his name once I started re-designing the character to be a male. Also, Hael holds the same last name as LU artist Nate Storm.
Final approved concept for Hael.
When we decided to make this character male I had to re-design his head - the body was easy as we just removed the curves. :P Also, I based these head designs on LU concept/character artist Brett Nienburg - our very own scruffy, dread-headed dreamboat.
This was the final design for Gail...
