Quite possibly my silliest idea for a character yet, an NPC for the San Francisco setting and inspired by the crazy variety in the nWoD Changing Breeds. Mongkut is a Thai immigrant that teaches muay thai kickboxing. (I'm lucky to have a roommate who's totally into muay thai whose brain I plan on picking for further details.) In any case, he's been chosen to serve as the avatar of some Crane spirit. That's right. Kickboxing werecrane. The crane sketched out in the bg is a Sarus crane, which is the tallest of all crane species and is declining in population. Their migratory paths carry them through India and Nepal as far away as Vietnam and Cambodia, and are thought to be all but pushed out of eastern Thailand. There's also a variety that lives in Australia. The more you know! Originally drawn with a plain ol' #2 pencil, retouched and colored in Photoshop.
