Origin: Raya Blackmoon, aka “The Priestess of Light,” was born in A.D. 1693 semi-immortal (long-lived) as a result of her mother's practice of the Wir Ka tradition. She appears to be 25-30 yrs. old. As the daughter of Nana Tituba Arawak, a priestess of Wir Ka captured and enslaved by the Anglo-tribes of Boston, Massachusetts (USA), and Nana Osei Dankwah (who used a pseudonym: “John”), a priest of the Akan and an independent citizen in the USA, Raya is the quintessential heroine. After her parent's self-imposed exile / banishment from the Massachusetts colony (A.D. 1692) while Nana Tituba was pregnant with Raya, the family amassed a fortune in gold / silver from international trade in the U.S. and abroad. Currently, she resides at the Philadelphia, PA HQ and serves with Karas Tyr and Razaaq as a mentor to Asad X. Neteru (Apadamax). Raya will serve as his primary mentor when he turns 21 years old (A.D. 2014).

This is brilliant. Really. The lighting, the anatomy, the pose, the costume, her expression. Is this part of a publishing project?
