Looks like the generic design came from my lack of understanding of the character. I'll tinker around with the design a bit more, then going to do a character outline.
To sum up his character, he is an amnesiac demon who took the form of the nearest dead human body around him who lost all of his memory when he gained sentience. Perhaps a more demonic motif would fit?
It's been generally stated already, but its a bit too bland. The first thing I thought was that it looked too much like Marth/Roy/any of those other characters from that Japanese game.
I dunno about adding demonic features, but if you're gonna make it work I think you should shy away from cliches like devil horns or demon arms.
Was thinking though: how did the possessed body die? Was he stabbed through the stomach? If so, maybe make it show on the character- like a demonic growth or simply a deep scar.
