Alaric Morgan Brandishes

In the work of fantasy author Katherine Kurtz, no character is more prominent or heroic than Alaric Morgan. He is one of the main heroes of Kurtz' long-lasting "Deryni" books, set in a magical medieval world. A big, blond hunk, he strides, casts spells, and battles his way through at least 9 of her books. Katherine is currently writing a series about his childhood, called the "Childe Morgan" series. By the age of fourteen he's already a competent magic user. This illustration, for a fan magazine, shows him brandishing his sword at some unseen foe, though he doesn't look too threatened.

"Alaric Morgan" is ink on Bristol board, 7" x 10", December 1987.
