Wow, this one is really sad--I was listening to A.F.I. at the time. ;) anyways, I feel a story developing here--Kalen is the keeper of the dark phoenix--it utters no sound except at the end of the world when it will give a cry for all the death and pain in the world. The dark phoenix's tears give the dead spirit forgetfulness until delivered to the world of the dead. Kalen, who has no memory before the age of (blank) has been tutored by Death. He delivers the spirit of the dead one to the world of the dead--but before that journey, gives them one last chance to see their loved one(s) in a dream. Oh, one more thing--the dead that Kalen deals with are those of innocent death--they didn't deserve it. This woman, a priestess of the snake or something like that,is 1) Kalen's love or 2)he just feels really sorry for her.
P.S. If anyone wants to develop a story, PLEASE do!! I would love to draw more, but I am not much of a story teller!
