This is a preview of the storyboards that I drew dedicated to the Compass projects. I am not sure if we will be using this storyboard or not, or better adapting it from the book. Some of this is spoiler, so dont focus on each frame, just sit back and enjoy the music.
“Hold on!” Fox Ulton
Fox Ulton is a character I created to partially represent me; there are many characters in the books that represent a part of me, but Fox Ulton was the first. A boy teleported from his homeworld before its’ destruction we find Fox Ulton dragging his sister behind on a make shift gurney. Fox represents the part of me that somehow survives, makes it through some really hard times, and doesn’t fear what may come. His homeworld is much like Compass, but Fox doesn’t even realize that he was a part one of the most historic cosmilogical events. The destruction of his world also meant the second age of the universe. When Fox had found Utonis alone in the desert he was totally unaware that not only was he teleported away, but he was also landed into the near future. Fox gets taught by Utonis; referencing the old man on the mountain tales as I tried to make this out as Utonis being the teacher and Fox the student. Fox Ulton is one of the most used characters in the books and goes through quite the transformation by time you get to book five, but overall represents the good in life. Fox’s first transformation is internal as he starts off a Valronian boy and ends up the Guardian of Compass itself. Katrin, originally Fox’s nemesis, is Fox’s half brother and tries to take the throne from Fox initiating Fox’s second transformation into that of Shaul Adow.
Shaul has no idea at first of who he truly is and ends up as one of Katrin’s generals in conquering the entire planet of Compass. For nearly a thousand years he did the bidding of his own nemesis until finally one day a woman claiming to be his daughter clears his head of his curse. The curse bestowed upon Fox that turned him into Shaul left him horribly scarred and thus is why no one recognized him. After becoming aware of who he actually is Fox returned to the kingdoms and tried to prove to them who he was in hopes to reunite the lands to stop Katrin. Unfortunately Fox changes again into a thrirteen foot tall man whose body is completely composed of an alien living alloy. This alloy and it’s history are reflected upon in the upcoming books so we will just let you know that the metal is one of the strongest alloy compounds known to exist in the universe. After studying two years of college astronomy… that’s a pretty rare alloy.
When his body became infused with the power of Kota, or chaotic, he appeared to look like a normal man, even his size and stature went to what would be consider as normal for a man his age. Finally he is altered again in his battles with Kalax and is rumored to be dead along side many other guardians that died to Kalax. Fox makes a very strong come back in Volume six… so I’m off to write some more so you guys can read that part for yourselves! I cannot go into much more about him because I don’t want to give away too much of the story, but if you have specific questions about Fox or any of the characters please let me know.
Again I appreciate the support of my readers and fans and would love to hear back from you. I hope to hear from you soon, and, as always, thank you for your time!
“Greed is for those who only think of this life.” – Utonis
As a child I grew up hearing the wisdom of my grandfather on the few times we did get to sit and chat. I say few because to me he wasn’t around for a part of my life, and then regretably he passed away. Utonis is a character that I wanted to represent what I saw in my grandfather for the many years we did have together. This blog is dedicated to my readers and fans as an inside scoop of my Compass Volumes. I hope you enjoy the read, and don’t hesitate to let me know what you might like to see in the volumes to come.
