The Marquis Coat of Arms


The Marquis "M" box was originally something I designed as part of the first preview issues logo~ later on I decided to use it as 'coat of arms" for the Marquis and a symbol of his pact with the Lord des Diables. Nothing that was actually used in the context of the story, but just decoration for the chapter breaks and something identifiable and interchangeable with "Marquis". Left is the first design for the original coat of arms~ when I revamped the logo I added more symbolism in context to the series (middle design) and then reworked the elements for the "Misere" character to reflect his time period (right design).
