Thumbnails for the chief character of the lion tribe.
Since this is a warrior culture, the chieftain is considered the most powerful fighter. He is a little older and grayer and definitely has some scars that he carries with him. His clothing is more regal and has more elements of cloth than animal skin like the warrior. His facial features are also a bit more human-like. Parts of his clothing also contain bits of their precious mineral.
I think I may end up combining elements of 1,2, and 5 on another pass for this guy.
