A young rogue priestess of the Mother Rain Memorial Temple of Aquaillia, secretly summons a lesser water deity to plead assistance for her ambitions. The temples have traditionally been plagued with deception and struggles for power and in a city containing a Water Temple in every major district the competition can be fierce! Cascade has never seen herself as evil, even when she has had to resort to assassination to promote her status. No, it is merely the best way to deal with an organization that is based on deception and illusion. You smile when you stick the knife in your enemies' back, all the while looking over your shoulder for the knife you know is aimed at yours... * I chose to paint this pencil sketch in Photoshop in tones of blue to infuse the scene with the feel of water-very, very cold water. Following is a lovely poem, written by Blackmist, who was inspired by this pic:Lost in the river of time... I stand to face my fears... The wind softly whispers Voices too faint to hear... Caressing my cheak so softly She wipes away my tears.... It is beautiful and I feel honored that Blackmist gave me permission to post it here!
