Lyrics copyright A Perfect Circle, of course. I got the song and was packing while I listened to it, and couldn't help seeing Haenor marching. And the more I listened to the lyrics, the more I saw it fit Mala's character. I was so inspired I had to draw something up. That and to pass time in the nunnery that is my life. (I pray when I move things'll be different.)
Mala and Fel's relationship is ... complicated. It's kind of like having a dog that would rip out the throat of anyone who annoyed you for a mother. But Mala knows the Dark Gods have bad things planned for Fel, difficult things. So she's half worried about him, and half determined to make sure he fullfills his destiny. Both Mala and Fel are baddies, and they kind of like it. They have no illusions about how others percieve them, but they don't mind a bit. Fel's the kind of guy who likes a good killing, and heck, so does Mala. But they have a genuine mother-son kind of complex, in a twisted sort of way.
I was just thrilled that Mala finally has a song on the soundtrack. Now I can finally burn a CD.
