Aenkae by Ahkward Aenkae by Ahkward
sorry for the photo, I've had no time to scan things and i feel bad no posting something ;n;

A Naor spirit and not a kind one either:

A woman who bore such hatred and spite towards Tuhk for making her sick that she killed herself just to meet him and not prolong her suffering. In her time alive she had mocked him, calling him a coward and a thief. People had always warned her to not do such things, yet she never listened. Upon her entry to Rohjun, the Naor "underworld", Tuhk smiled and offered a deal to her. He stated he had acted rashly and caused too much suffering to her in her lifetime and said that if she could answer his riddle correctly, he would offer her immortality. However if she were to guess wrong, she would give him her soul to be devoured.

Tuhk was surprised when she answered correctly, and in his spite at losing, he cursed her into this form, a horrible harpy-spirit with a raspy, broken voice, a deformed face, grey skin and dry scaly talons. She is incredibly intelligent and will throw out insults about your insecurities and remind you of mistakes in your past, especially those you hide from. She now haunts Rohjun harassing those who dare to travel there and Tuhk himself if she gets the chance.


Aenkae roughly translates as "hate // madness/ insanity"

Is this from folklore or did you make this up yourself?
Love the background behind this drawing! :D

Yes, I have a whole bunch of myths for the Naor universe I've created for my graphic novel.
