The second part of my WWI Odessey series, Polyphemus the cyclops is shown as the beligerent German colonel. His downfall via Odysseus is a result o his excessive opulence and drinking habits. Therefore the backstory I came up with him relates to his past; in the portrait are his three squadmates in the franco-prussian war, friends he lost due to his overambitious goals. From then on, he has risen quickly in rank, but spends his time brooding and drinking in his study, alone and remorseful.
