I drew this immediately after the 2021 Eurovision final, as you might have already guessed. Since the nordlings are basically Finnish and the elves Italian, the idea of Theodius and Giendei singing their corresponding countries’ entries was too hilarious to pass up.
In any modern setting Theodius’s musical tastes would be a grab bag of rock, metal, Finnish tango and iskelmä (Finnish schlager), with random 90’s domestic and international pop somewhere in the mix. “Ukkometso” is definitely in there somewhere. Also, I always imagine him driving a dingy old Lada or a motorcycle, or both.
