Name: High Thane XerisClan: SornaElement: SoundLevel: Second Circle, Manifest Element (Hearing)The second in a series of eight Baruuk High Thanes; feel free to read the text below to find out more. Xeris is master of sound and silence. This was me trying out my first-ever metallic colored pencil, hence the silver plating and spots. I'm happy with this one, and for some reason I really like the little onion-domed castle in the back.The Baruuk are a race from my Meridia worldscape distantly related to dragons, whose Clan are each led by their lone female, the High Thane. Each of the eight Baruuk Clans has an affinity for one of eight elements, mastered by their High Thane. This worldscape has an elemental wheel of thirteen elements, arranged in four concentric Circles. The First Circle contains the Physcial Elements, Fire, Air, Earth, and Water, which are used by human elemental mages. The Baruuk are attuned to elements of the Second and Third Circles: the Manifest Elements, which correspond to the five senses: Condition, Sound, Toxin, Light, and Entropy; and the three Fundamental Elements: Energy, Force, and Void.Note for the Curious: For those of you who enjoy metaphysics, the Fourth Circle is the center of the Elemental Wheel, and is simply called "The Eternal Element." It is considered to be the divine element (ka, chi, soul, mana, life force, whatever your preference) that is present in all things and holds reality together.
