Shinobu and Yoshi

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

Shinobu and Yoshi are both gods, who belong to the pantheon my niece Anne and me created for our story Tale of the Traitor (which can be found here: http://annika14.elfwood.com/). Lonely Shinobu, god of fire and birds, desperately wanted a companion. He had befriended several dragons, but was not enough. Then Lunalt, the supreme god, took pity on him and asked one of the dragons, named Yoshi, if it would agree to become a 'humanoid' god and Shinobu's partner. Yoshi agreed and chose to be a woman. The happy couple soon married and would eventually get two children: Takeshi and Savio. It was however their granddaughter Tsukiko who was most influenced by Yoshi's dragon heritage: she became the first dragonrider.This picture is supposed to be a formal, stylized representation the pair, like one of those great windows in cathedrals which tell a story. It was also much inspired by Mucha's work. It is part of a series of eight, which grace the eight walls of the Dragonrider's Temple (and now also this gallery...). The other windows show:Lunalt and Rhosyn      -       Sorin and Asherah     -      Ivorm and Takeshi Myron and Morana       -      Hinata and Miruna     -       Remiel and Savio Tsukiko
