Faust is Aki's fully-realized persona and my thoughts for his design are all here [link]
I never got around to finishing my initial concept for non-Magatsu! Faust, and I'd been getting nostalgic feels for my old persona roleplays and #Morphos-Metaphor
in particular, so I sketched this out and spent way too long on it
It got pretty out of hand.
He's not wearing his Higashimori uniform here because my headcanon is he continues to fight shadows alone until he runs into a certain person... well, okay, I have a lot of headcanons. I'd like to make a comic for them, someday.
