...I ought to be careful or this'll turn into a Manya-only gallery over time - I like her too much. Anyway, like the one of Claire, this is a comparison of what could have been and what really came to be - actually this one came first, and I enjoyed the idea so much I drew one of Claire, too ;3 On the left is Manya the way she could have been had she not been drawn into the battle of gods - had she never met Mondrian. A scholar, highly skilled in the art of summoning of elemental spirits. Always smiling, but perhaps a bit lonely. On the right is what turned out to be - not quite as ladylike, but undoubly stronger of will, wearing the clothes she had had made at Harken - fashioned after Mondrian's style of robes.
