The Artist

The Artist exists only to create, to give themselves, body and soul, over to the arts. They express this desire through
many mediums. A hypnotic painting, music trapping the audience in pure ecstasy, books spellbinding their
readers, or a model’s sculpted flesh are all the purview of The Artist. Artists have the ability to speak to the souls
of others by inviting them into their own, but this ability always comes at a price. The price is paid by The Artist
themselves, be it their sanity or strength.
