Fourth daughter of the royal house of the Torumekia. Princess Kushana is one of the leading characters in the Hayao Miyazaki's epic manga comic: 'Nausicaa of the valley of wind'. Although Nausicaa herself is clearly the main character of the story, I have always found Kushana to be much more interesting and 'real' person than her. Nausicaa is too much 'messiah like' whereas Kushana can be vengefull, mersiless, cynical and bitter and still be a good person after all.
Because I couldn't find a single picture of Kushana within Elfwood, I decided to draw her in her full armor, under the doubleheaded serpent of Torumekia. Long live princess Kushana!
