I've been thinking of getting back into drawing comics, and this is a potential character for a fantasy comic idea I have.

I'm imagining she would be a very morally gray character, who became a healer because she likes watching fighting, and wants to reduce the consequences of fighting so she can have more eye candy—both because as a carnivore, she has biological and cultural reasons to not be bothered by violence at all, and on top of this, she has an intense personal fixation on displays of strength.

…but as a result of this, her utter lack of squeamishness and loyalty to good despite great temptation for evil makes her a genuinely good doctor who's helped a lot of people in a way few others could. She can defend herself, perform dangerous operations quickly, and think outside of the box in ways few healers can—at the cost of some lapses into creepiness so extreme it can make it easy to wonder whether her choosing to be on the side of the heroes is inspiring or perverse.

I wanted her design to take this into account. Cats are considered cute, cat girls are considered sexy, and I wanted her to be both while also making it clear that that cats are carnivores, and taking advantage of the dissonance between her design and her nature to make her creepy moments more meaningful. This picture might emphasize the "cute" side a little too much, but I think that's the type of thing I can only really get a handle on by drawing her more.

I still haven't decided exactly how the story would handle this, and how much I actually want to go through with drawing and writing something this dark, though :p
