Koma's Pet by Quarter-Virus Koma's Pet by Quarter-Virus

WARNING: OLD ART!! The art and comments in this Deviation may no longer represent the artist's current views or interests.

Laz'ab is nowhere near comfortable divulging information about his past to Doctor Azil'mort, but I've been wanting to draw a more serious comic for some time about the torture and humiliation he received at the hands of his former Master. Darth Koma taught him little in the ways of the Sith after his training on Korriban and is a huge part of his extreme mistrust of others and his dislike of intimacy.

(Yes I realized too late there is a consistency error in her armour.)

So I watched your video about how you don't like people pairing up your OC's, and I'm really sorry for my comment. I did not mean anything by it. I do not ship Azil'mort and Laz'ab as a couple. It was just a joke. You probably think I'm stupid for writing this, but I felt really bad about my comment after that video. I'm sorry!! I'm sorry!! I'm SO sorry!
On another note, you're really funny... please don't hate me :(

Okay, I love this waay to much to be healthy... *sigh* And I tend to have a very soft spot for characters like Laz'ab.

Umm... but one thing. On the eighth panel, I don't think those spikes were supposed to stand like they do.

You know, you made a totally evil, psychopathic bastard...and I feel for him. Because you've made it very clear early on, that if the world at large hadn't been so cruel to him, he would have been a very different person. And i'm sad and frightened knowing exactly how he became what he is.

Oh gosh, Laz'ab is so cute here! Poor thing!! I didn't know he had a vulnerable side.

Wanted to ask, you make it seem like Laz'ab will kill/torture almost indiscriminately if he's bored (you mentioned that you'd rather be in a room alone with Joker than with him D:), and that confuses me because - because of his past, it seems like a lot of times he would end up seeing himself in his victims. Weak average Joe in the wrong place at the wrong time sort of thing, who just doesn't want to get hurt.
Does that ever happen? What would he do if he was torturing someone if they started to remind him of himself?

He doesn't get reminded of himself.

You're assuming he has normal emotions; Laz'ab is a psychopathic serial killer with paranoid schizophrenia, and is possessed by Force ghosts to boot. I have done intensive research into the psychology of serial killers and what prompts people to become "monsters"; Laz'ab himself is inspired by a number of them. He lacks remorse or sympathy, he doesn't feel sorry for anyone, and doesn't want sympathy from others in return. He may have a tragic past but hell if he cares, and if you bring it up he just may well kill you for it. That's the mentality of a psychopath; he lacks emotions which is why he can do what he does, which is torture, maim, and murder without conscience.

Ah, that makes sense then!
I've tried to research psychopathic killers before but at the end of the day I just can't understand them (sociopaths yes, psychopaths no...), but there are a lot of other character types to appreciate.

Thanks for the explanation, and it's cool that you research/extensively flesh out your character's psyche's. Always makes for better characters!

Laz is actually the result of someone pointing out to me that I have a lot of thieves/pirates/Mafioso/brigand characters - the loveable rogue archetype, basically - but little else in my gallery. And while this is because I love thiefy characters, I could see their point, and so I thought I'd try a character I haven't attempted since my wannabe-Goth days in highschool: the insane psychopath. But this time I did my research and unlike my slew of depressing murderous characters from back then, Laz came out a lot more solid and with depth because he's a bit more "realistic" this time ... even if that realism makes him remorseful.

Thanks. =)

MayJackson Featured By Owner Dec 12, 2012
Remorseful...? Like Laz is remorseful about something (doesn't seem like he is capable of that xD), or did you mean it's hard for the audience to not feel bad for him?
And thieves can be wildly different, just depends on why they're thieving! Most of your 'thieves' do have in common that it's b/c they enjoy that kind of life though :)
Well, Laz'ab is very different! And he must be really fun to rp xD Powerful, unstable characters often are! Another question, if you're not too busy - can Laz intentionally be rational in that he'll keep someone alive if he sees a use for them? (Obviously w/ people like Caspira he will to avoid getting in trouble) Or could he easily, say, let his crazy get the better of him and turn on Dr. Azil'mort some day? Maybe he's planning on that after his treatments are finished?

Wow, typo. Meant *unremorseful. Lack of remorse.

It really depends on what's going on, where he is, how he's feeling, as to how he will behave. In surroundings or situations where he's comfortable Laz'ab is usually very coherent and can easily ignore his warped perception of the world and the voices, because he feels "safe" in his environment. In public places or strange locations - especially with lots of people - he feels more uneasy, but sometimes will seek these areas out if he's looking for loud noises to drown out his mind.

The reason Caspira is still alive and not hanging limply from his lightsaber is because he's demonstrating rational thought - she's an Imperial agent who's handler is another bigger, tougher Sith than he, and as much as he loathes her, he likes living more, and so he grudgingly lets her keep an eye on him. Hence he revels in tormenting her mentally, since he can't torture her physically. Lately she's been through a rocky relationship with another man and Laz is sinking his teeth into it and wrenching her heart around when he can.

Azil'mort is also a stronger Sith than Laz'ab, so he doesn't cross him too willingly. On top of that the doctor has had plenty of opportunity to kill him when he's been sedated, asleep, or stuck in his kolto tanks, but hasn't yet. Laz'ab has been able to recognize this, and while he is incapable of feeling "trust" due to his lifetime of abuse and backstabbing, he doesn't mind Azil's company and likes having someone else there who he can throw his rage against without being judged for it.

That said, sometimes I use the random dice system to roll for his moods or how he'd react in a situation, so attacking either Caspira or Azil'mort is always a possibility.

Oh good! I'm relieved to hear Azil'mort could fend for himself. On the scale of scary he doesn't really touch Laz'ab, but now that you mention it I do remember a Q&A saying someone strong could win a fist fight with Laz :)
And it makes sense that Laz doesn't really mind Azil'mort being around... Even psychotic murderers must feel that human urge to have other familiar faces... around. Ish. Sometimes. :) Hopefully not an urge fulfilled by having one in a box.
He's a fun/interesting character for a psychopath, a lot more interesting than the Joker imo (who just does random crap for nooooo explainable reason, whereas with Laz it seems to be: 1. for amusement 2. he feels threatened or 3. force ghosts).
Maybe I'll draw him some time! Maybe... with my only character stupid enough to want to be in his vicinity. But I promise not to OOC Laz if I do that.
Thanks for the explanation :D

Yeah, a lot of psychopaths in my research did seek out familiar company, or at least tolerated it to maintain their farce. The Joker is a villain for the sake of being a villain, so he's allowed to be more deranged I suppose. But Laz is supposed to be a character who can evolve through my roleplay, so in that respect it could be argued that he had more thought put into him. Way back when I first created him he was more two-dimensional, like the Joker, a lot more stereotypical, too. But that all changed once I started doing my research.

I'm perfectly fine with fanart as long as the characters are kept true to themselves, really, even if they appear with other OCs. No problem at all for the explanation, it was fun to chat.

Geez, it'd be fun to RP with you using my Chiss Merc, he has a similar past, yet that had the opposite effect to a degree - while he tries to destroy everything in sight, making the most damage possible, he is a compassionate sort, almost always LS to the extreme, excepting to when someone is harming him or someone close to him - then he's right about as lethal, deadly, sociopathic, psychotic, schizophrenic, violent, bloodlusting, vicious, and many other crazed and insane things as Laz'ab is lead to be in these pics you usually do....

Throughout the duration of my reading this comic..."Poor, poor Laz'ab" kept on running through my mind. That was all I could think.

Besides, y'know..."Hey, his eyes are purple!" And it was interesting to finally see what Darth Koma looked like.

Well done! :clap:
