Spirit of a Warrior - DOTW Quote MSE by KelpGull Spirit of a Warrior - DOTW Quote MSE by KelpGull
"The spirit of a warrior is geared only to struggle, and every struggle is a warrior's last battle on earth."
- Carlos Castaneda

:icondomain-of-the-wolf:

Phew, this one just kind of ran away with me >.>
I read Castaneda's "Journey to Ixtlan" not too long ago, and I think it may have subconsciously influenced me while developing Ruzan's character ;P
Though not heartless, Ruzan's mother had a very pragmatic view of her daughter's condition. She spent most of her puphood preparing her to one day sell her life as dearly as possible, and to die a warrior's death. So living in Heyl is just a little bit strange for her :XD:

That lighting is pretty intense. Reminds me of the final battle from the lion king or something. Good stuff!

Lovely! The expression on their face is amazing, and I love how the other
wolves are just shapes with glowing eyes.
