AYA SANAE; First High Warrior, Warrior – Aya Sanae at 22 is the oldest of the three High Warriors. She is patient and has a motherly air, and has “adopted” a high percentage of the homesick, poor children who work at the palace. She enjoys art and music (and can’t hold a note in a bucket; luckily, she doesn’t try). She is the ‘big sister’ to the Princess and the other two High Warriors. Although Aya is warm-hearted and always assumes the best of those around her, she plays her role as Warrior very well. As the physically strongest of the Warriors she is the main line holder and throws herself into combat passionately. Threats are met and dealt with efficiently and effectively. Aya was the middle child of seven siblings of a middle-Court noble family and often was the confidante and caretaker of all of them when their parents were away. Now that her new position has gotten them set for life, she can concentrate on her own interests. Despite the understated scorn of many of the close-minded members of the Court, Aya is quite open about her relationship* with Kasay, the Sorceress.** Aya’s mystic symbol is the Cat’s Eye, which symbolizes emotional wisdom and perception, but also a kind of need for affection. As Warrior, her realm is Body. *Yes, she lives an ‘alternate lifestyle.’ If you don’t like that, tough luck. **She couldn’t exactly keep it secret even if she WANTED to – their ‘lover’s spats’ can easily get loud enough to rattle the castle foundations. Fortunately for everyone it doesn’t take all THAT much to distract them during these little ‘quarrels.’ You just need to be suicidal to get close enough to do it… Well, that's a nice, brief description of Aya. She's a character in a story that I came up with last summer (2001) when I was at Mori no Ike, a Japanese language camp. She is one of the three High Warriors - Warrior, Priestess and Sorceress - who protect and accompany the Heir of the kingdom (in this case, the Princess - I'll get a picture of her up eventually!). Do you want to see more pictures based on this story idea? I haven't really done much with it artistically beyond these character studies... Anyway, comment and critique. I particularly welcome suggestions regarding the armor - I'm no good at drawing equipment... -_-
