*One of those really OLD
characters that just happened to pop themselves into a vast collection of stories about the adventures of my 7 ancient Egyptian gargoyle clans. It's been on the back-burner since 1998, and it's about time to create new artwork as well as tales. Ancient Egyptian mythology is one of my favorites to tap into for Inspiration for both the really deep passion of mine to create art and storytelling. ^U^*
I wanted to draw both of these 2 as children first, and then as young adults. Dixie lost both of her parents when she was just 6-years-old, while her older brother, Thomas at 13-years-old became super protective of his little sister. Until news of their parents' unexplained deaths reached Memphis, the mysterious leader of a small group of gargoyles before he even found the Thebes Clan with his friend, Imhotep via the radio on the local news reports in modern-day Cairo, Egypt. These are 2 super scared American kids from the Deep South of the USA, who are pretty frightened and alone. Seeing mummified gargoyles were not apart of this
family trip for an entire month. These 2 pretty brave kids, Dixie and her big brother, Thomas do end up becoming adopted into life among a small gargoyle group that goes by the name of the Thebes Clan. Imhotep and the rather lovely Golden Leopard Sphinx gargoyle warrior-maiden, Emerald decide to take in Thomas as well as a pretty young Dixie who were also raising a young ancient Egyptian boy-Prince, Nefer with a grey hound mummified puppy. Memphis has 2 twin sons of his own. Kids will squabble. There's another young woman, Annie who's from China that Memphis is super close friends with in this small clan. The 4 boys and Dixie LOVE it when the adults have to do Story Time!!
A girl will become a beautiful young woman and a protective young prince will become a formidable Pharaoh of the human half of the Thebes Clan (Memphis leads the gargoyle half of the Thebes Clan. Teamwork is just as important to both of these fine desert-bred warriors). Dixie has gone onto to pursue a degree in History, but she has always considered Egypt as home compared to the States. She can track beings from the Supernatural world of ancient Egyptian mythology and its Afterlife. All of a sudden, a small team of ancient Egyptian gargoyle warriors and a rather handsome young man in a Winged Scarab Ra form amulet arrives to protect Dixie from harm. Memphis states that: "If you bring someone home with you from a battle, they are under your protection". Dixie and Pharaoh Nefer have been childhood sweethearts for a long time now. These 2 know that there's a deep passion for each other, but think it's best to renew their close friendship first before beginning to fall head-over-tail for each other. The tall young man, Nefer is a very honorable, just as well as a highly-skilled Second-Level Magi just like his Teacher who is also a really close friend, Memphis.
Hope that you'll enjoy these 2, uddelhexe
