Ohnoez the Haunted Hessian!

Ok..so...all this time I've been told that my family came from Alsace-Lorraine ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alsace-Lorraine) , ie: this bitty part between Germany and France that the two countries keep playing Pong with and taking ownership of off and on again. Right now it's in France's court...last I checked, but my family in essence is German in ancestry.

But apparently my uncle did a bit more research and found out that we, while possibly having family ties there, actually come from Hesse/Hessen, which is, consequently, where silber lives now (Hofheim is in Hessen) and I am /never/ going to hear the end of it after this little discovery. Hessians have an interesting dialect as tascun has so often demonstrated XD <3 and have a very very stinky and disgusting cheese, but aside that...well, anyways. XD

Apaaaarrently during the revolutionary war when the Hessian mercenaries (LOL Christopher Walken goes omnomnom!) came over to help the Brits (ohnoez) they um...stayed. Maybe that's where Dornsife, Pennsylvania comes from *shrugs*

Anyways, so I couldn't resist taking a chapter out of Winged Siamese's book and drawing Niko in Hessian gear. Granted, I know nothing about this crap, too many details, but here's some quickie doodles I did on New Years.

Apparently I didn't like drawing arms that night. Kinda awkward without a handlebar moustache and a monocle to counter that godawful pope helmet.

...

oh what the hell.

Don't take the details as seriously authentic just take it as a silly little blood traitor with a bored pencil. :>
