Also I drew a Baphomet thing. I sorta added in a Hindu/multiarm thing along with small things to other religions…sorta. The two main ones are the prayer beads he has. Christianity and Satanism. Then the signs for the planets. The sigil/alchemical sign, the Leviathan Cross, on his head for the human spirit. Two snakes because I’ve seen and heard stuff about the world serpent/ouroboros being two snakes.
Lot’s of peircings. Pain is a big part of growing, struggling, and learning for me and I know many see it as a form of pleasure/enlightenment/etc. I look to the goddess Hel for that and I do feel a sense of comfort in it.
And then of course the inverted cross at the bottom. Alot of people don’t know that it isn’t even originally a symbol of Satanism. Many think Satanists flipped it to show they weren’t Christian or to just be disrespectful, when infact Saint Peter, the first Pope, supposedly requested to be crucified on an upside down cross when he was martyred because he didn’t feel worthy of dying the same way Jesus did.

Cecil’s birthmarks changes shape and movement with his emotions - they flare up when he’s flustered or angry, hide under clothing when he’s scared or embarrassed, move rapidly when he’s excited, softer shapes for good feelings and rougher shapes for bad ones etc.

He’s kinda self-conscious about them since it’s like wearing your heart on your sleeve, but Carlos thinks they’re pretty (and also scientifically fascinating).
