JumKeTu by Ahkward JumKeTu by Ahkward
I promise Naor and myself are not dead. I stopped working on this when i moved and never finished it, so here is what I do have. I think I'll just leave it as is. I had hoped to have time to sculpt this in Zbrush once I cleaned it up and got it all neat. u_u sadly i can't and even if i did, I no longer have access to a 3D printer.

From left to right we have Ke, Jum and Tu. They together are the season gods and gods of other important aspects of the lives of the Naori. Each god has its own set of rules and how it came to represent what it does. They weren't just.. born representing what they do. XD Jum is the only one of the three than can use any kind of magic, as all of her magic knowledge was given to her by Roht, King of Gods. Tu and Ke, they interestingly enough have only basic magic and then their specialties.

Jum (middle)

Jum is well known to my betas as one of the Season gods, Winter in Particular, she has the longest portion of the year. She leads the trio (naturally) and the other two would be Tu of Spring, and Ke of Summer. Jum is a quiet god and does not speak much, she is demanding and often unyielding, except on some occasions. She is in general a very sympathetic god, even to this day. The start of her Season (which doesn't exist yet in the myth storyline) is considered the Naori New year, the beginning of a "Full Cycle" as they are called in the "Naor" storyline, occurs on roughly on May first. Naor is in the southern hemisphere, so their seasons are opposite of ours. (Even though I know May 1st is roughly a month and a half early, the Naori seasons are not going to match up perfectly anyway because Naori go by moons, not days.)

Jum herself is fairly large, according to my charts, approximately 7 feet tall (at the eyes as Naori measure height by eye level). I have some sketches of her here, as well as the rest of the JumKeTu trio... I actually have yet to make a full picture of her. One of any summer projects, I assure you. XD It will be Ke's

Ke (left)

Ke is the god of Hunt, Summer, and Fauna/Animals. She is incredibly fast and you'll see her in Chapter 53 I believe. Ke rarely interferes with the lives of people and animals, even though she is protector of the Island during her season (which Naor starts in). Her season ends when the Naori year ends and Jum's begins. For every kill that hunters make, a portion is left behind for Ke as an offering. Ke was originally a simple lizard before she became a god.

Tu (right)

Tu is a very grumpy god, he talks little, having been originally a plant before becoming a god. However when he speaks, it's usually mumbled and poor language skills. He is the god of Spring, Poison/Medicine, Farming and Zaihkt. He's the least likely to ever appear before people and is very unlikely to ever help anyone. He is not a malevolent god, he simply isn't as attached to humans as Jum and Ke are. It is thanks to Tu that Zaihkt/shamans came into being as it is he who created the Naori medicine called "Guema". In addition, it is his blood that they drink to begin their final test, which is essentially poison to kill the hopeful person. This way they are able to enter the spirit world to begin their test. For these two reasons, he is revered by Zaihkt and they honor him for these things.
