Xizor Sharpens His Claws

Brothers Hildebrandt
11 X 15 inches


In a Star Wars galaxy far, far away, Xizor was born into wealth. He grew up liking money and power, and he has an abundance of both. Xizor is considered one of the most influential beings in the galaxy. He even rivals the power of Emperor Palpatine and Darth Vader because of his wealth and influence, and he is just as corrupt.

Guri on the other hand was not born but created. She was a human replica droid, who was engineered as an assassin. The only human part of her was her skin, which was cloned from specifically for her. She was programmed to be anything that Xizor needed to be and required her to do. She was his most trusted guard and partner.

Greg and Tim render Xizor and Guri with detail and care. They use a monochromatic blue to render Xizor and keep him in shadows creating a dark and corrupt presence as he sharpens his claws. Guri’s long blond hair falls delicately on her shoulders and wraps around her back, giving her a natural and human appearance despite her mechanical creation.
