I think when you get to this point of the game, the only “Thu’um” you’re supposed to have is the “unrelenting force” power, which pushes your target backwards a bit. Needless to say, I spent a lot of time doing sidequests, and had a wealth of options. Also needless to say, those robes aren’t fireproof.
Raki’s head in panel 1 is exactly how I want to draw it. The shape’s been quite variable as I’ve been making these.
