The Staret


I finally got my project back the other day. I should have taken a picture before I submitted the project but you know how it goes.
I suppose I should explain this guy a bit. I based this character on Rasputin. He is a Staret associated with the Russian Orthodox Church. Starets are mystics with powers given to them from the Holy Ghost. They can heal the sick, predict the future and act as spiritual leaders. They are not directly appointed by the Church but are recognized by believers. I thought that an individual with this sort power would most likely become corrupt, therefor this is a dark Staret.
