The mortal one

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

This is Githoniel (again) in his mortal form. He is clad in his angelic armor and wields his heavenly sword called Erestoreth, which means "light bringer". The name Githoniel means "Right hand of El", and "El" is... god in the world where Githoniel comes from. Githoniel is one of the four guardians of El. The guardians were created to die so the evil and good inside them would be seperated (looong story, not gonna explain that here). Githoniel is the last remaining guardian as one of the guardians has become the embodiment of evil itself, but because he is still alive, his duty is not yet fulfilled (this guardian is called "the fallen one"). The other two have succesfully seperated the evil and good inside them (I still have to think of names for these three guardians). Githoniel has lost his angelic form and to preserve his spirit, he shares the body of a mortal boy. The reason this boy is clad in Githoniel's armor is because he is about to enter hell itself to fulfill the duties of both Githoniel and the fallen guardian by killing both of them (he has to kill himself in order to fulfill Githoniel's duty, as they share the same body). Right... that's about the most confusing description I've ever made...
