But he must be ever vigilant around this bully/servant of his! That guy can't be trusted! Another fine addition to the story! Very excellent illustration as well!

It may teach a bit of humility....if he doesn't stab you in the back first....I wouldn't trust him as far as I could throw him. Besides, will he become more humble or more angry? I'm leaning towards the latter.... :/
Though I find it interesting he was going to show some humanity and let the guy off the hook but is now jealous of the nicer conditions the cadets get and is now going to make the guy pay. He needs to be careful to not become as bad as his own bully. I mean a bet is a bet, if he wants to hold him to it that's fine, but I find his reason for holding him to it to be...interesting. Shows a bit of a darker side to his character, being jealous of the wealthy. Jealousy isn't healthy... (the debate of the nicer quarters being 'fair' or not is interesting because technically if the wealthier families paid more for nicer quarters it's not really unfair is it? Other than of course if you break down if it is fair that they have more money or not, which have to go into how they made the money in the first place, if it was fairly earned or not...hmm....long debate for sure).
Intriguing part of the story for sure.

Thank you so much, APlusDesign! I really appreciate it and I enjoyed reading your post very much! I think Avery's thoughts are "This guy has all the breaks in life and look how he acts! Why should I give him one and feel sorry for him after seeing how he lives!" It upsets Avery that there is a status system in military training, since they are all studying and working hard to become Officers. Now, the Academies are creating another tier in the Training by giving special treatment to the wealthy, Van's Dad actually wanted him to go to Empire by scholarship to save money, but Cadet Mab beat all of Van's scores! Van is in a lot of trouble with his perfectionist dad!

Nice looking character. Great expression. I like his closeness to the camera. Helps to pull us into the scene!
