Octavia - Pirate Queen

  “Pirates of the Caribbean – At Worlds End” was so good! I watched it at the premier in my city; it started one min after midnight. I was home at 4 o’clock in the morning, exhausted and happy. To prevent falling asleep at school next day I started painting, as usual, and of course I made an inspired piece. I’m hoping on getting her coloured some day. This is Octavia, captain of “Snakes’ Eye”, a skilled swords(wo)man, and a Octopus Lord (or Lady). She’s well known and her colours are feared all over the Emerald Sea. Her parents are Plainlings but she looks upon herself as a pureblood Waterling nevertheless. She speaks both the Plains tongue and the Watery tongue fluently. Her only “friend” is the Waterling native Isabella, whom lost the ship “Snakes’ Eye” to Octavia in a bet and has since then worked with her as an excellent weatherworker. The Emerald Sea lies in a world parallel to our own, though it lies behind us in time. It’s populated by three different races, the Plainlings that live on the great, green plains and who run a medieval kind of society with a King, the Waterlings, who resemble the natives of America by looks and live on small, tropical islands, and lastly the Mountainlings or Peaklings, who live in the great, snow-covered mountain range and resemble Vikings in looks and Dwarves in behaviour. The Emerald Sea is run by pirates and is ruled by the Lords of the Sea, a title inherited within a line of pirates with the gift of Summoning. Each Lord has the ability to call upon the Creatures of the Deaths, and Octavia is the current Octopus Lady. If everything goes as I plan I should open a site in the Wyverns soonish, where I plan to post the first few pages of my first ever pirate story, featuring Octavia and Isabella as the main characters. ;)
