Lord of Nightmares and Lei Magnus, visiting all the four worlds of the Slayers multiverse - Black, Blue, White, and finally Red, where the Slayers' story is set!

This huge piece I drew as a celebration of the release of the Slayers novel sequel, volume 16!

Suddenly, a sequel after many years!
And with another volume come more afterwords with L and her subordinate S, so I had to draw them!

So yeah, L dragging S around her universe... without any warning... and turning him into a crab (again).

Tried more or less canon outfits and appearances for both of them! They should really get more fanart and recognition, they're my favorite characters along with the main cast!


I also drew another Slayers fanart - fav.me/dcp0hy5

Л-сама и Лей Мангус. Лейка Магнус мирно поливал цветы лейкой, как вдруг Л-сама потащила его дать круг по своим владениям - четырем мирам Л-самы. Синий мир изобразила больше подводным, хотя мы ничего про него не знаем. Но мы знаем, что главмазоку в белом - Смертельный Туман, так что просто нарисовала город под белым туманом и облаками. В красном на фоне горы Катаарт, в черном - космос, раз там 1000 лет назад была цивилизация космического уровня.
Рисовала на 5 листах А-4, которые потом склеила в фотошопе. Надеюсь, не очень заметно.
И да, Л-сама опять превратила подчиненного S в краба в синем мире.

It all makes sense now Subordinate S is the fallen angel that made the worlds to shake when he discovered he couldn't have the Creators place! S stands for Shabranigdo, Satan, Subaru, Syn Samael, Saturn, Seth, same fallen god different names.

Slayers still kind of has a different mythology, so this one never shaked anything and never wanted the creator's place - creator can't decide is she wants to keep the worlds or destroy them, so her wish to keep them gave birth to gods, and the wish to destroy - to demons. But interesting theory with the names starting on S, never thought of it. Demon kings in other 3 worlds don't start on S though. I also heard a theory the Slayers writer took inspirations in Lovecraft's works for ridiculous names like Shaburanigdu, Dugradigdu etc, it seems believable.

I agree with that just look at the world and its clear the Creator is undecided about whether she wants to keep or destroy the world. That is why people live in despair, that is why the world can never change, think about it if the Creator is indifferent than what hope does one have and without hope people fall into darkness.

I find the crab part of our article fascinating because that is kinda what i thought Shabranigdo looks like, that reminds me of what Cancer Schiller said in Saint Seiya Omega the crab listened to god and was given eternal life, the humans didn't listen and got nothing. I agree the other demon lord don't start with an S, but then again it doesn't appear they were called subordinate S or had any closeness to L-sama. Its also worth noting the ultimate villain at the end of Saint Seiya had two names Subaru and Saturn both start with S. Its also interesting the lion king villain is Scar and in ice age hes Soto. Not every main villain starts with S but many do.

Now i am going to get a little esoteric in the Sailor Moon series an image flashed of Serenity when she was a baby playing in a sandbox with a golden shovel. Also note there is a new game called universe sandbox. Its also worth noting that Serenity played dumb throughout the show yet she accessed an encrypted computer that wasn't hers by pushing what she called a few random keys. When you look at Sailor Venus and Moon they are twins only how they dress sets them apart. Some say L-sama stands for Lucetius, Lucid, Lucifer, aka the planet Venus/Aphrodite. Lord of Nightmares, Lucid Dream, Lucetius, Golden Lord, Golden Kingdom Hearts, Sailor Venus and moon both posess powers beyond other senshi, both shapeshift, change genders at will, both have powers taking shape as a heart, both are love and justice, and both have a gold crescent symbol.

Some fan comics of Sailor Moon depict Serenity married to a man who betrays her, in slayers we see L-sama with a man who becomes very evil. I wonder if the Creator really did make a partner who became jealous and tried to overthrow her just like the Sophia Yaldabaoth story in Gnosticism. If this is true maybe the Creator is indifern't because she fells hurt at being betrayed by Subordinate S? Another reason i think Serenity is Chaos is because we have the Sea of Chaos, and the Sea of Serenity. Subordinate S is the evil Chaos called Sailor Chaos in Sailor Moon.

Thanks a lot!
Well the first 8 are available in English, and the latter 7 are fully fan-translated! The first Special novel (about Lina and Naga) has been fan-translated too.

I wish I had it on my shelf in polish. But maybe one day I will decide to read it online in english. :)
It shouldn't be difficult to read, right? Sweating a little...

Yeah, it would be nice if it was translated to more languages.
The language is very easy to understand, my first language isn't english and I understood perfectly!
