The Little Cosmos


WORLD GUIDE


Click each country to see the characters who live there. Click each race to see the characters of that race.

MOUNTAIN KINGDOM
Cut down the center by the Sea of the Skull, crisscrossed with man-made and natural water-ways and blanketed in green, the Mountain Kingdom is home to the Aureates, one of the oldest civilizations in the world. For nearly two millenia, their rulers have been overshadowed by the Ivory Warlocks, a race of pale giants who, under the direction of their ancient father, Primus, learned to harness the power of the stars.
In recent times heavy taxation, poor distribution of resources, disorganized leadership and tension between the Aureate kings their Ivory counterparts has forced a wave of refugees into the neighboring Crescent Kingdom, even as Primus threatens to wage war against it.

CRESCENT KINGDOM
Ravaged by cycles of flooding, heat, and drought, the Crescent Kingdom is none the less home to some of the most fertile forests in the world, splendid with life and color during the spring and summer months. The land is ruled by the Jets, a people who have, in ancient times, driven out all before them, and whose culture is as opulent and unforgiving as the land. At present, they find the Crescent inundated by Aureates from the Mountain Kingdom, welcomed by the Jet leadership but often not by the Jets themselves. Aureate influence prompts the evolution of Jet culture, leading to the mixing of cherished Jet lineages with Aureate blood, and giving birth to a racial hierarchy and frequently to violence.

IRON VALLEY
Iron Valley exists in a separate era, on another planet from the other two kingdoms. Shrouded in mist and hedged in on every side by forbidding mountain ranges, Iron Valley is home to a proud race of warriors called the Ferric. For centuries, their kings have been the soul and the jewel of their nation, the fathers of their culture and the highest general of their armies. But now, under the unsteady leadership of the volatile and vindictive King Rex, the fabric of their culture is threatened by anarchy as they struggle to retain their national identity without being destroyed by their own king.

Clay and Fire
What started out as a cool-down sketch then morphed into some sort of YA-adventure-story style collage.... Due to the pretty random selection of characters, it got me thinking about the potential of human DNA that has Hitler made of the same stuff as the middle aged woman working the cash register at Speedway, as mother Theresa, as a still-born child that never had the chance to express it. 

These thoughts didn't really go anywhere.

...Ancient Greeks used to think of the universe as composed of a few core elements: water, fire, earth, and blood/bile. By this interpretation, the human body was thought to literally contain fire, and human eyes to be composed of water and fire...

The Halfblood
Napalm

In the Crescent National Army, after a new recruit has passed through a battle, their lower lip is split with a knife and in some cases rubbed in a mixture of herbs to increase scarring. The scar represents the shift in perspective after a soldier has fought for his life and his country.
