Thomas Gates is based on two characters I created when I was in high school named Namorian Gates and Paradox/Grail. I decided to merge them and create a stronger character. He is a sorcerer who is reluctant to use his powers in the modern world. He is joined in his adventures by Raoul his ferret familiar. Designed for a modern Urban Fantasy/Horror setting, I hope to have a short webcomic story for him in the fall.
