Since I currently don't have time for creating a comic or novel about this, I will just post some pictures with a bit of description.
Maria is character from the world of Navya, a vast and changing place with more than a few thousands years of history. And no, it's not only words. I created the first story more than ten years ago, and from that point this world was living it's own life. Now I have around seven stories, taking place at different(really different)times, which hopefully will be converted into comics or novels. The curiosity for readers might be the fact that I use basically the same cast of characters for all of those. That, by no means, cause the plot of those stories to be repetitive. It's rather my own experiment to make those characters as much diverse as i can because of the environment, and yet still the same at the core so readers can say "wait a minute, is this...?" And as you can suspect, reincarnation is a fact here; everyone in the world of Navya know that soul never dies... Some just not want to believe in this.
Back to Maria - she is a simple girl living with her partialy blinded brother Nathaniel at the outskirts of a capital in one of the human kingdoms. Her red hairs usually come in two braids and skin is tanned, covered in so many freckles nobody mind to count them anymore. In the mean time she sells some herbs at the city square and buys food for little street urchins, as she and her brother are war orphans themselves. And the only things that make her so different are her strangely golden eyes, throught which she shyly looks at the world. At least that's how her life looked like before she and her friend Ethan met the ("runaway") priestess of The God Tree.
That's all for now!
