This is a rough drawing from a story I'm writing. The genre is adventure with subtle horror/fantasy elements in a modern day setting. This particular character is a freshman college girl, and one of many citizens whom contracted what can only be called an illness, presumably from the fumes of mysterious factories which have sprung up in certain cities to supply the armies of the enemy.  Much like an illness weakens a person, those who are cursed have their life force slowly drained from them. In return many are able to access abilities others can't like telepathic thought and manipulation of energy, a rare few even seeing what lies beyond death. Each person's abilities vary somewhat. These abilities grow as the individual continues to lose their life force until finally they die.  In order to stop it she and many others like her rebel against such an overwhelming enemy, one that has infiltrated governments and powerful corporations throughout the world and control the people through oppression and death.This character is not the leader, but she's a inspirational force that manages to make an impact in the battles. Although telepathy is one of the common skills those who are affected gain, and everyone in the group is expected to be able to do it, this character has great trouble with it and to her frustration can never manage to relay more than a glimmer of thought. At first she's seen as a weaker member. However, later on in the story she manages to hone a more rare and just as useful skill; a mirage-like ability called Shadow Stepping, which depending on the amount of light, allows one to jump from shadow to shadow without being seen.drawn with pencil and photoshop - no reference used
