Bryce’s dad is a ruthless man in control of a whole country, but his bitterness comes partially from the critical state of his son’s health. Worried about him being unable to discover the world by himself, he ‘hired’(arrested and maybe killed one or two of his friends) a painter that could depict a beautiful world he would never live. Art is said painter(smeargle gijink.) and he used to be part of the opposition. He is now forced to babysit the son of his greatest enemy.
They started out very bad, Bryce being frightened by Art’s presence because his dad had told him that all outsiders were filthy and filled with sickness, and Art had all the reasons in the world to hate Bryce, being very rude to him. However, with time he started to feel emphatic to the cubchoo’s situation and now tries to be slightly nicer to him, while filling his imagination with lively stories about the outside world.
