: About Magnus wearing Runes; during the design meeting for her 'MI' characters
, Cassie and I also happened to discuss which words we'd like to tranliterate into Tattoos
. The concept was tossed around that each character would wear a Rune that fit their personality.
Magnus was one of the first designs I'd completed, so with ten more on the line, time-wise going back to redraw it wasn't an option... that's not to say I wouldn't have tried had I not only
discovered Magnus wouldn't be able to wear Runic Tattoos while reading the fact in City of Bones.
and by then it was on the main website. Cassie did want him to have full Tattoo Sleeves though, THAT wasn't a mistake.
