As with most Dark Time characters his concept is based on an alpha design before his true design (which the Soulcalibur games have come close to).

In original planning he and Blood Knight switched who would wear a cape. Nepenthe originally had a scarf rather than the cape he usually has nowadays, it was uniform for him and his student Janetsa to have a scarf. This could also be seen as his outfit prior to him being a King. Blood Knight was not given the scarf in later planning as it wouldn't mesh with his intimidating look.

About as close as I can get to his design barring DW7s limits. His SC5 version holds true to his design.

As with his prior designs his armor color is meant to emulate plant like colors, lighter weight than he usually has with the way the armor looks. One thing that has always been absent from his designs is the rose on his cape. His BD version has his accurate hair style.

The thought behind him was mostly plant related including his armor and underclothing color, wanted to experiment with having a different armor color for a Knight type character than the usual Silver, White or Black.
