When one thinks of a Temple of Light, one usually envisions it totally unguarded -- or at best guarded by white-clad guards, paladins, or pristine white and golden avatars. One doesn't always realize that as evening falls, and the creatures of the night gather their power, that the temple's entrances will need to be guarded by a creature who can utilize the arts of stealth and darkness as well (or better than) any nightdweller.
Originally an experiment for an avatar, I later decided to expand this into a fully-fledge figure and scene. Well, at least more of one than it was before. Comments and suggestions are welcome!
