Dueling Delia

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

I made this picture for Matt Gonzales, Delia the Necromancer is his character. Here's her story: Delia was born into a forest village of Moon Elves and lived a peaceful life up until the age of 30. At the age of thirty she began to have nightmares filled with dead things from which she would awake with glowing white eyes. One night she walked into the graveyard and dead started to rise around her. Quite concerned and very afraid, her parents took her to the archmage who informed them that she had the blood of a sorceress, specifically that of a necromancer. Strange events continued after, and eventually she was exiled for an inability to control her manifesting powers. She eventually learned through her struggles in the wild, making her way to human lands. She saw advertisment for a dueling association that would pay her handsome sums to join on as a duelist. She joined and since then she has never looked back. Contrary to popular belief, Delia is not evil. She simply works with the tools given her, and sees nothing wrong in bringing the dead and the energies of death to her aid. Often she emerges to the field to echoing boos, but she also has quite a fan following (typically young teenage male humans). Being quite young (just 110 years old:) , Delia has no particular goals in life other than to have fun and master her abilities. After having faced the trials of her own village, she takes a fair amount of time to trust anyone, although she does tend to project a very confident and flirty personality. Close up .
