So I tried a bit of a departure from the usual fan art and tried to come up with 5 characters of my own without reference, here is the result:
- Xanvyrala (mage)
Xanvyrala is a mysterious figure, the shade of a once great and benevolent mage. Following a grave incident which badly damaged her corporeal form, she initiated a ritual spell to trap her spirit and dwindling life energy inside her mortal shell. The wrappings which bind her incantation
seem to defy the laws of nature, as they cling to her body unfailingly and defy any amount of heat or moisture. Because of her cryptic behaviour and unnatural look Xanvy radiates an aura of fear and foreboding to most outsiders and many prefer to stay out of her way. The fact that she almost never speaks (when she does, she claims it is very straining to her) does little to alleviate these misconceptions, even though many have reported seeing her help those with kind souls in their times of need. No one has ever seen Xanvyrala eat or drink, and when she sleeps, she does so standing perfectly still with her arms crossed before her, the magical eye on her girdle ever watchful. Her fearsome reputation is more than deserved on the field of battle, however, where her clawed hands and devastating spells are used to great effect against those who would do evil. Xanvyrala mostly adventures to combat evil, explore and find a way to restore her natural body.
