I don't mind it. It actually seems to work on him, and the mullet...not so much. A good in-universe explanation may be an "important haircut," as he had his hair long in Llewdor (long enough to hide his ears), and getting it cropped was a bit of a nod to say "I'm no longer a slave."

Of course, it's also possible that he was practicing magic, misjudged a spell, singed his hair, and had to get the burnt parts chopped out.  :suffer:

That would explain the haircut. :P

I still say the spikes are just natural. Maybe because my hair does that, I'm just trying to make him seem more like me. :P

I like his hair. I had a huge crush on him when I was growing up and even now with his new look, I think the crush might be coming back.  :P I think people are just surprised to see him looking different, and it is more of a shock factor. Everything about his character works though: hair, voice, clothes, facial expressions. He is a beautifully made character.

:yes: Very happy with the way he's turned out so far.

Funny how a hairstyle sparked a 3-page discussion.

Shouldn't you know by now... three pages isn't very long for this forum!

Well, considering the relative insignificance of the thread in the first place, it's pretty impressive to me.
