McCullock's Final Choice

By Ryan Firchau /

Depicting the finale of the Camp invasion, Ryan Firchau's amazing art depicts Captain Adam McCullock's impossible decision faced to him - to chase down the escaped Chimerans to nip their revolution in the bud, or to stay and tend to the crops and feed the starving.

A key theme of The Chimeran is the analogy of tools and weapons. Here we see Captain McCullock brandishing a tool designed for farming as a weapon - ironically this is how he described the chimerans earlier. They may be designed to save, but they could easily be used to kill.
