Phew, finally finished this one.
When I first read about the theme of the contest, my two own stories came immediately to my mind. These two stories of mine are probably the only reasons I am still drawing and keep working hard.
So my journey is mostly about them.
I have added some of the main characters from both my fantasy and sci-fi storylines.
Starting at the bottom the characters are:
4th Praetorian Suzette Senft, the leader of the Destroyers, the cunning, elite samurai of Lemuria
3rd Praetorian Gerald Alfonsus, the commander of the dread wolves, the empire's heaviest, infantry, and also the best spellcasters
