Blair Nimway was once the partner of adventurer Dr. Robert Bly until a traumatic expedition in Sudan left her permanently scarred in more ways than one. Blair is now a successful and ruthless businesswoman who works in the upper echelons of GEEVA directly under the CEO Mr. Vritra. GEEVA is a private contractor paramilitary corporation who specializes in weapons technologies. Despite her senior position at the company, Blair thirsts for the power over others that has always seemed to elude her. She hopes that by finding Vril, the legendary substance that Robert had sought which has the power to both destroy and replenish life, will give her the power she desires and deserves. Blair has devised a plan to capture Robert and force him to give her the information she needs to allow her and her mercenaries, including Devon Isoba, to uncover the Vril Source. Little does she know that her plans will be complicated by the interference of Robert’s daughter, Shelby Bly, and a few other parties whom have yet to reveal their motives or true identities.
This is very close to being the finalized concept art for this particular character. I need to maybe tweak a few things (including her hair, perhaps) and then this concept will be finished. I then need to focus on a few alternate outfits and a younger version for a planned flashback sequence. All non-spoiler future character concepts for this character will be posted here on this page.
We will first meet Blair Nimway in the graphic novel’s prologue which is set 20 years in the past and that’s why I needed to create a younger version of the character; the version you see here. I’m not sure about the tank top as I’d rather have her wearing a plain t-shirt so I may change that. Otherwise, this will probably be the final version of this concept.
