BACKGROUND: Zubair is a great warrior and a skilled blacksmith-in-training. There’s a long story about how he first met Augustine the Blacksmith. Zubair was fleeing his home kingdom (that’s another long story) when he came upon Augustine’s battered body just after he had lost a great battle against Azra the Dragon. Zubair carried Augustine for two days all the way back to Mont Petit Pierre, thus saving Augustine’s life. Zubair thinks of Augustine, Claudette, and Gaston as family. The feeling is mutual.
SPECIAL POWERS: Zubair is the greatest warrior in the Seven Kingdoms. But he doesn’t go around bragging about it. Zubair knows it and his mentor, Augustine, knows it, and that’s good enough for him.
Rafael and I are BIG fans of Nina Levy’s work at Daily Napkins. Here are really cool drawings Nina did on napkins for her kids’ lunch featuring Claudette and Valiant…
