Qra'lafh

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

This is a Qra'lafh, Sat'eah's polar opposite, oringinating from Hra's desert moon, Lu Du. Somehow, she made it planetside around the year 2371 (My novella Breakaway takes place in 10328). She is immortal, except for the fact she can die of starvation or dehydration. Her name is the only exception to the hra'anh (that's the language) rule that all feminine names end in vowels. The reason for this is that she wasn't found to be female until hundreds of years after she was discovered. The name wasn't changed. Her lack of legs doesn't hinder her mobility at all; she uses her wings as legs. She does, however, prefer to fly, as it is easier to snatch up prey that way. Her enormous wingspan of 75 feet casts a shadow on the ground as if a large, menacing cloud was passing overhead. When she flaps her wings, the resulting wash is enough to knock a man to the ground.

Breakaway - Chapter 2

Chapter 2 of Breakaway About Breakaway: I began this story after drawing the Hra'vakh Chieftain (see my SF&F gallery). At first it was just this little thing I was doing to pass time. But it evolved into a monster. I started the draft in May and finished it the first weekend in August. It was mid-August before I made final revisions and did my read-through, but I'm happy with the way it came out. It's about a chieftain (Chf'drak) that must cope with his father's assassination, his corrupt brother's rise to power, and, well, you'll have to read the rest of the story to find out.
