The arderial in the middle is Sparrow. Her tribe are all competent fighters, but they disdain the spilling of blood. Sparrow, on the other hand, is considered ‘defective’ as she actually enjoys combat. As a result, she was sent off to the Fighter’s College, very far away from her tribe, eliminating the chance to pass on her tainted blood to future generations. An effective, unofficial exile. Shown in the picture is one of her favorite weapons, the long claws. Next to Sparrow is Whitepaw, the cat-demon, in her cat form. This character I haven’t worked on very much yet. But she’s shown with her favorite weapons, the tiger-claws and rooster-claws. The big sword to the right (yup, it’s a sword) is suppose to represent the obligatory love interest, a mysterious fellow student by the name of Scar, a chimaera. I wanted to get him in the picture, but by the time I got there I didn’t feel like drawing another person, and he doesn’t have an animal form. So, I threw in his massive sword and called it good. It was roughly the same story with Sparrow’s patron goddess, Spheathrow, arderial goddess of war. She would be the eyes and feather at the top.
