The Lawyer of Iurtinsnact Country
The Lawyer of Iurtinsnact Country (TLIC)
is an illustrated book project I own
with my friend Nalak-Bel.
It's a collaborative project
As the countryside of Iurtinsnact is slowly being eaten up by the large industries of the so-called Cleaner,
Basil, a young man with an innate talent for good speaking, embarks on a career in law
in order to defend the landin which he grew up.
With the help of Romarine, his lifelong love and partner, he manages to find work in the City,
where he can practice his profession as a lawyer.
However, it seems that the atmosphere of the city and its technological advances have eaten away at
the hopeful young country boy... After almost four years of separation, what will Romarine think of what her lover
has become once he becomes a famous lawyer in the city, whose fame has earned him the nickname "Devil's Advocate"?

"[...]Basil comes from the Spiel family. This means that, like the other members of his family, he has a special talent.
What is it? Let's see what's in my notes!
The Spiel family trait: "a real gift for bullshit added to an incredible charisma. Everything that comes out of their mouths is easily accepted by others as "the truth", and their word is never questioned. Great potential for manipulation and mind-twisting".
To take an example: the sky may be blue in color, but Basil can perfectly make you accept the fact that it is green in color [...]"
"[...]His obsession for excess comes from his youth. As a child, he lost his parents, his farm, his possessions and was almost swept away by the Cleaner, causing him to lose more... Romarine.[...]"
"From a simple and willing country boy he has become a true manipulative snake ready to do anything to enrich himself. Basil Spiel, the best lawyer of his time, accepts bribes, shakes hands under the table, and is a master at making false speeches. The most terrifying thing about him is that he is extremely good and never loses,
from the smallest dialogue to the most passionate debates."
"[...] No matter what obstacles were put in her way, what Romarine did with her arms was not to put them down, but to roll up their sleeves and get to work. She is our model, she is our lantern that lights us towards our goals.[...]"
"[...] The red hair is a distinctive sign in the universe of Iurtinsnact, as it designates the Candles;
the CandleGlow family is one of them! What is their particularity? Let's see it!
"Particularity of the Candles family:
They are real candles / matches that under the emotions can ignite. The hair that serves as a flame grows back immediately, looks like an ember and smokes as long as the temperature drops; when their arms or some of their limbs melt, the Candles don't feel anything;
they are however sensitive to cold. [...] "
