Not really. But I've wanted to know what the deal is with the pic in Janos place. Maybe Kain Painter can shed some light.

Umm... That, mate, is a Thrall.

The colours, as You can see, are a little different, because they're scanned from a magazine.

But that is a Thrall.

I can't say those pics look too similar to me either-- aside from, as Punkst4r mentioned, the top of the head.

I do miss the looong mural debates from the forum olden days, though. I'd love to know who that guy and a few subjects from some of the other debatable images really are.http://www.imagemagician.com/images/rook/wayfarer/coolltblu.gif

...and people might argue that _people_ don't look similar...;)

But...I guess it's the 'haircut' that tricked me, then.

Though I still think there's some similarity between them...
As for hair...hey, last time I checked, the amount of 'visible'
hair differs between humanity's members, too! ;)

...but if it _is_ found out that the guy Kain's sucking
belongs to folks that are/have been on friendly terms
with Janos/his folk...I can get me a cookie!:D
Otherwise, this was just a little theory...;)
anything's possible with Defiance, right?

Oh, and Rook...you never know...those debates might spring to life again...;)

And Kain's still a messy eater...:p

Yours, with deference (lacking Defiance...:()

Akhem...

That bloke on the second pic is a Thrall (not a Hylden and not some other thingamajing).
Thralls are undead warriors who guard the historical landmarks of Nosgoth, especially the Elemental Reaver Forges.

For that reason, I do not understand why Janos would decorate his home with a mural of a far lesser being...
As for the hair, Sade, we've seen so many screenshots of the Thralls in both TLOKS-SR2 and LOK-D, but I haven't seen much difference in their hairdoo... ;)

In summary, the man depicted in the mural and the Thrall depicted in the in-game eating sequence in LOK-D are two totally different beings, despite small similarities that our human brains find.

The man has so much hair and flesh. In fact, he's even quite muscular. But the Thrall... well... he's literally a walking skeleton.

There could be the possibility that the Ancient Winged Beings and the Ancient Warriors hanged out together... or were enemies... When the Ancient Warriors died, then the Ancient Winged Beings either cursed them to linger in the Forges... on the other hand it could've been a gift, too, but I doubt it.

So I think that if that bloke in the mural is related to the Thrall, then it could be the fact that eventually he died and was cursed to be a Thrall... or something... this is all so very questionable... I can as well say that he turned into a pillow... or a Bob...

Just my two cents.
