Meet Dux

There aren’t many characters left to introduce, but here’s one. To start, here are some of my design notes.

Dux Certus
Gender: Male
Age: 47
Height: 6’ 1”
Build: Fit, strong (not overly muscular)
Hair: Brown (average length, neatly arranged)
Eyes: Brown
Dominant Hand: Right
Clothing: Typical Angellus clothing (gray). He dresses neatly and professionally.
Additional Note (Appearance): Strong, confident, and commanding. A natural leader.
Character Summary: The leader of Ars and Tia’s research team. He’s determined that his handpicked group will be the ones to solve the mystery of the lost history and he won’t let anything get in their way.

Dux is Ars and Tia’s boss at the LRC. He’s smart and determined, but that determination can sometimes blind him to everything else.

Here’s some of Hanbee’s original sketches of Dux.

Dux didn’t have much of a role in my original plans for an Aurora’s Nightmare novel. His research is important to the plot but he himself, not so much. As such, his appearances in the first story path of the visual novel are minimal. However, he gets to play a much larger role in some of the other paths, which gave me a chance to flesh out his character. As for what exactly his role is…well, you’ll just have to wait and see.

Let’s finish up with a look at one of Dux’s final in-game poses.
