Hamilcar Barca

Barca or Baraq meaning thunderbolt in the Punic language. Did this quick drawing while listening to the "stuff you missed in history class" podcast http://history.howstuffworks.com/stuff-you-missed-in-history-class-podcast.htm. These two brothers are from Carthage and attacked Rome in 218 BC during the second Punic war. Hannibal famously lead elephants across the alps and his brother held Spain as he did this, and I think the thunderbolt brothers sounded too cool not to draw.
