I’m a new writer writing a fantasy story. A character had a leg ripped off below the knee and I’m not sure how to describe that. It’s in a first person perspective by one of the other characters trying to slow the bleeding with a tourniquet.
To be clear it wasn’t a clean cut it was ripped off. I’m not sure where to start with describing it so any help would be appreciated!
There was a prior fracture there due to a previous conflict. Again it’s fiction so the creature that caused it is too so there’s no defined amount of force that was used. There were two arms pulling apart on the already fractured bone which is why it broke there instead of the knee.
