Lucius from Fire Emblem 7 with the orphans (left-to-right Raigh, Lugh, and Chad) from Fire Emblem 6. Raigh and Lugh's parents were people he once fought alongside in FE7's war, and he's now caring for them at his orphanage after their parents disappeared.

So when Lucius died he reincarnated as Libra. Makes sense to me.

There is not a single reference in this picture to Libra or FE13 at all.

In trying to figure out how this comment is relevant I can only suppose that because this picture involving Lucius hints at the concept of death, you made the mental leap to the realization that Lucius would eventually die, and from there to the logical conclusion that Libra is his reincarnation because it's clearly impossible for two people with similar looks and trade to ever exist separately from each other.

By this logic I'm probably the reincarnation of some starving artist overseas who died of overwork years and years ago, since a lot of us nerds look pretty much alike.

I was just pointing out the numerous similarities between the two. Don't take it so literally. Jeez.

Haha, I'm sorry, I've just heard that comparison a lot of times and lost patience with getting it on a picture that doesn't even have them both in it. You couldn't have known that, though, and it is funny how they seem to have been based on each other; I guess reincarnation's as good an explanation as any, since it obviously can't be a coincidence. =P

The only Fire Emblem game I played was Awakening, and they look really similar. And reincarnation has showed up in the newest game I mean, look at Rhajat, for example, who is Tharja. Literally Tharja.

Well, I like both Lucius and Libra as characters, although I think Libra comes across as more internally conflicted, almost a lost soul seeking to fill the void left by his family's absence. Lucius always seemed more sure of himself and satisfied with his choices, though it's possible he was just better at hiding his own scars.

So personally I prefer to believe they're two separate people, if only because Libra seems to have taken a step backwards in self-confidence. If they were reincarnated though, all I can say is, jeez I hope in his next incarnation he finally gets to have a happy childhood haha.

Awww, this is really sweet. Lugh and Raigh are just adorable (So is Chad ;)) And with Lucius there to comfort them, it justs sets the mood.

I always thought one of the reasons Lucius would want to have an orphanage would be so that he could give some children a better experience than what he went through growing up.

(Thank you for this comment!)

In retrospect, Fire Emblem 7 was a very sad game when you think of all those that didn't join your army in Fire Emblem 6. So many people gone missing (except for the ever happy couple Pent and Louise, but they're special together).

This is definitely a tribute to all of those parents and people.

Wow, this is amazing! Lucius was my favorite Fire Emblem character, and after looking into it, I realized he actually probably was the priest dude who dies in FE6. 

THANK YOU FOR MAKING THIS! It's so wonderful! T^T

Thank you very much for your kind comment; I'm really glad that even though you haven't played the game, you get a sense of atmosphere and story from the scene and colors! =) The context is that the front two kids' parents disappeared some time after they were born, and they're now being cared for by the owner of an orphanage who once fought alongside their parents in a war.

The lighting and composition in your drawings are always amazing... also your art makes me really want to play the older FE games, since I've only played Awakening so far ^^;

Thank you very much, I'm glad you like them! =) Haha, I'm glad I can make you curious, though there are a lot more characters in them than the ones I usually draw. I highly recommend the older FE games (with the admission that I've only played around half of them myself) and I hope you enjoy them if you get a chance to try them out someday. They're more challenging and the support system is less accessible (unless you replay several times, you'll probably end up reading most of them online since you get limited supports per game), but the stories, characters, and gameplay definitely make them worth experiencing.

Yeah, I've heard a lot of great things about the older games. I actually found an emulator download package thing for FE 6, 7, and 8, but I haven't had time to download it yet. I'm really looking forward to it though...

Thank you so much for this comment, it means a lot to me that it has such a strong impact on you. I really appreciate your taking the time to try to share it with me; I'm very grateful I was able to convey the kind of emotion I wanted in this scene, thank you. I actually started this over half a year ago but left it lying around all that time because I wanted to get it right and I'm very happy I was able to show what I wanted with it.

You're welcome! That you spend the time to wait so that you could get this piece right is evident. I still can't find words, and usually words are my strong area (I used to write a lot of poetry, but it would take my some time to craft a poem that could do this artwork justice).

Thank you! I'm really glad the image makes an impact.

I'm actually more worried about Lucius's hair... Don't stand with your back to all those candles!! Jeez it was the first thing they told everyone in chemistry class, that any kids with long hair had to put it up before working with open flames. However in this universe we've got long-haired sages throwing fire magic around everywhere, so I think the laws of improbable anime hair apply. :P
