My shipping of the two characters of my own, Hailey Pollume and Franzis Adler ^w^ Sorry about the super long story. This was gnawing at my head wanting to be told. Also if you cannot see the burn scars of Franzis, no worries gonna re-do the art in the future.... Backstory on their scars
Both Franzis and Hailey's scars happened in consecutive missions. Both of their scars are recent wounds of near death. Hailey's scar reaches the whole length of her right side abdomen. Her body has weathered many kinds of explosion throughout her years in the guerrilla group. However, on a particular mission on fuel tanker hijack, one of the fuel trucks exploded. Hailey was blown back by the explosive force of the fuel truck. A piece of metal sheet impaled her as she was blown back by the force. Klarisa, her sister, was completely in shock about Hailey's current situation and shouted towards Tonii to tell the group to pull back and forget about the mission. Another tragedy struck the group just as Tonii is about to order the retreat. Franzis was close by sniper support near one of the fuel trucks they managed to capture, when a stray bullet hit the tanker cause a sudden fire torch on the tanker. The fire happened so fast that it caught Franzis by surprise and burned the whole left side of his face. Franzis screamed with a blood curling pain as he rolled on the hard road. Tonii immediately sound the retreat and grabbed Franzis and lifted him on his shoulders, while Hailey was helped with Alexei and Mica. Both were grimacing in pain as Mica and Klarisa helped to ensure Hailey doesn't lose a lot of blood and Alexei assessing the extent of Franzis' injuries.
Just as they reached back to a hidden government base, Hailey fainted due to excessive blood loss and the flesh on Franzis' left side of the face was peeling off. Hailey was sent to immediately to the surgery room where doctors worked to remove the metal sheet stuck at Hailey's body. The doctors were horrified with the damage as the metal sheet had almost gone through her body. the metal sheet also broke a few ribs. Slowly but surely they remove the metal sheet to ensure no further blood loss and immediately work to mend the broken rib bones and close up the wound. Another group of doctors worked on Franzis' face. They decided to cut the whole cheek of Franzis' left side of the face as the burns has made the flesh irrecoverable.
After the surgery, both Franzis and Hailey were placed in the same ICU ward. Hailey had a breathing apparatus strapped to her face, while Franzis had the whole left side of his face covered with bandages. Franzis awoke first and look at Hailey just in front of him. He then walked towards Hailey staggering with a few steps. Looking at Hailey's pale face, his tears welled up at his right eye, he grabbed a chair that was close to her and sat down next to Hailey holding her hand. The rest of the group came back to see Franzis sleeping on the chair with his right hand on Hailey's left hand. After a week, Hailey regained her conscious and immediately felt pain in her abdomen. Franzis, who slept by her side everyday was awakened by Hailey's grunt of pain. Franzis slowly hugged Hailey as he sobbed uncontrollably knowing that she's alive. The rest of the group came in to see Hailey smiling with teary eyes, hugging Franzis back. The group gathered around the both of them, especially Klarisa who hugged both Franzis and Hailey. From that fateful mission, Franzis and Hailey were always supporting each other in every mission.(NOTE: This original character of mine is from a fictional series of my own.
