Desombres, Augustin Marie Honoré

Augustin Marie Honoré Desombres is an artist and painter, born in Bourg-en- Bresse, France, on September 22, 1869 AD. Driven by a mysterious force, he found his way into the world of the Cities at least twice, and became obsessed with Mary Von Rathen 1).

Officially, he disappeared in November 1906 AD, although everything indicates that he, in fact, became the guardian of the A.Desombres Museum. He left in this building several frescoes that allow Passage into the Obscure World, and his work has seen a surprising rise in interest after 1990 AD 2).

During his stay in the empty building in Aubrac, he painted several frescoes. Somehow he caused and repaired the problems in the Obscure World. He stayed a short while with Mary von Rathen. When he left back to our world, he was touched by Mary and his hand kept some strange markings 3).
