Note: Yes, I’m merging Day 2 and Day 3 together but for good reason. I’ll make it up by posting an (old) experimental comic page.
Name: Eli “Eye” Yean
PD (Physically Deformed)
Eli Yean, better known as “Eye,” is a Physically Deformed human with partial oculocutaneous albinism: he lacks pigmentation in the hair and skin. Normally albinism takes away the pigments in the eyes but in Eye’s case, his have remained a stale brown colour.
Eye has a form of Cyclops Syndrome, a roughly defined term given to mutations where only one eye is developed during the fetal stage. Cyclops Syndrome is often accompanied by disfiguration in the nose, mouth and the skin surrounding the eyes. At an early age (3-4 years after birth), Eye undertook plastic surgery to cover the exposed muscle of his nasal cavities and his inoperative mouth. Eye breathes partially through his ears, which were made to connect to the nasal complex, and partially through the thin skin that lies on top of his “nose.” Since Eye cannot ingest via oral cavity, he ingests nutrients and nutriments through liquidized supplements. Eye does not know that he’s received the surgery.
Eye is an orphan. The Prohibition of PDMII (Physically Deformed and/or Mentally Inept Inviduals) Act was passed two years after his birth. His parents managed to hide him away for an additional two years, during which he received the cosmetic surgery. However as inspections grew vigorous, they were forced to give Eye up to the “PDMI Region,” the same slum that Redact is later thrown away to. Eye is adopted by a local orphanage. There he stays until the age of fourteen; he leaves out of own volition and finds work in a post office. He meets Redact at the age of twenty-two. Redact is three months old physically and seven years old (and quickly increasing!) intellectually when he meets Eye.
Redact and Eye’s relationship takes root in a vanilla sort of love and friendship. It doesn’t quite approach “Venus” (Venus is one of the four types of love; it defines the sexual aspect of a relationship). It instead lies somewhere between ”Eros” (alternatively called romance, eros is the longing for an emotional connection with a partner) and “Storge” (the affection that arises from familiarity; storge is common between family members, and can thus be referred to as familial love.) The latter, storge, in fact is more prominent between the two than the former, eros. As an orphan, Eye seeks companionship in Redact, and Redact seeks a foundation on which to build his life. (Practical, the both of them.)
Fun Fact #1: Lack of mouth withstanding, Eye can speak. Not well, and not for extended periods of time, but he can project enough to communicate. To enunciate, he uses his tongue (still functional beneath the skin) and his 5-7 teeth. Since he has to speak through a layer of skin, his voice is often quiet.
Fun Fact #2: Eye likes to cook though he can’t eat. Needles to say, he’s not very good.
