I was asked not to make England too stereotypical, with tea, royalty and Downton Abbey. Well, here you go then… My England is fresh, young and wild- punk culture and rock music. I also really like Joseph Gilgun, and he was originally going to be my England, like you can see in the early sketches (link below), but the design didn’t work. England is hot, proud, jealous and impulsive. He remembers how great he was, and the glorious victories he had, but that does not make him blind or stupid. You don’t survive that long, or extend so far by blind rage alone. So he is rational and calculating when it suits him, but when deep feelings are involved, the raging beast will stain history with another bloodbath, as it had happened with his sister’s rebellion. England is USA’s elder brother, although his feelings are more than just brotherly. They come from the great European family, that has descended from the late Roman Empire. USA was sent to the New World to conquer and spread her brother’s glory. Little by little, she became big and experienced, and free thinking has occurred. Some say that heresy against tea took place, and the English beast was unleashed. USA was heavily beaten, lost her limbs, but still not broken. Thanks to that accursed French vampire, England had to retreat, empty handed. But USA will be his again, one day… Oh yes, France, the stinking, perverted, bloodsucking peacock. Although, France himself is not impressed by such accusations, since he does not paint his hair red and chase after his own sister in ragged clothes for unmentionable reasons. Still, the English beast can bite, and those aren’t the stylish vampire bites that France enjoys, the old vampire knows it all too well. Likes dags, good dags. Has a smoking-drinking bulldog named Churchill. A real friend, loyal. Not like those colonial siblings. Even though it’s England and not Great Britain, I chose Union Jack’s colors, since they are more recognized. The hairstyle is wild and red, since he is a punk. I have a few versions with different heads that you can see in the link below. England prefers close combat with his fists, so he uses brass knuckles. His hands can emit hot and cold energy, but they never mix (two taps joke).
