Meet Pyralin Dempsey -- a character who has undergone so much change it's hard to get her story straight. Well, she started out as a boy -- brother of Psych Dempsey. As a boy, his name was Pyralis. Well, Pyralis got himself turned into a dragon by the Dark Lord, so Psych was on a quest to turn him back. Some how Pyralis was morphed into a girl, Pyralin, and it became Psych's snooty fiance who was turned into a dragon. Eventually, somehow, magically, Pyralin was turned into Psych's sister rather than fiance. And she's no longer a dragon. But she and her brother are dragoons, or dragon lancers, and work together tag-team style. Everyone trained in their rank of knights is a partnership of a man and a woman. They have techniques for throwing one another high into the air - -and when you look up, they drop on you. Kind of like Jagulars.

One again, the mini is just to cute. Love the story behind this chick, you gotta love well developed and highly changed characters.

:-) Glo 'the Bug' Bowden replies: "Hee hee...I have so much fun doing the minis. They can have so much expression, and yet I can whip them out in five minutes and they still look good because no one really expects a lot of detail when they're that small. ^_^' And Igotta say amen to that -- who doesn't love well developed, highly changed characters?"

So they harpoon people from the ropes that dangle out of midair?! That's pretty cool...

:-) Glo 'the Bug' Bowden replies: "Yeah, well, you know."

What a great character! The idea of acrobatic commrades in arms riding dragons just floats my boat. I can easily imagine the complicated maneuvers they would perform in the great blue yonder while their enemies flounder around in confusion. In fact, this reminds me of a scene in Eldest (second book of the Eragon series) where Eragon jumps from his dragon Saphira in the middle of a battle scene. Eragon has complete confidence that his faithful friend will not let him hit the ground. Does this inspire a new pic with Pyralin and Psych in the midst of such a maneuver? Hmmm...

There I go again letting my mind run amuck. I just can't seem to stop the inspiration from coming when I see your awesome pics! *mischievous chuckle*

2 Glo 'the Bug' Bowden replies: "Actually, Psych and Lin don't really ride dragons. When Lin/ Pyra*lis* was a dragon, Psych did, but I ditched the idea when I realized that traveling with the group all covert like into the Dark Lord's domain and trying to stick to the shadows in the country side was made difficult by a big ol' dragon in the party. Now that I think of it, if the dragon's aren't *people* anymore, they could be summoned, or just don't have to go into towns and stuff with the group anyhow. Hmm. ^_^ Your comment has gotten my juices flowing on these sadly underdeveloped characters. Thanks for the epiphany!"

Heh, I’ve had a few characters who’ve gone through this much change; it’s so interesting to see how many phases a character will go through until you find one you like. I’m all for seeing a pic of those two in action.
As for the pic: I luff the boots. And the li’l mini thing is so creative, as well as the spiraling stringy thing and the mini’s interaction with it *gwee*

:-) Glo 'the Bug' Bowden replies: "Ha ha -- funny that you mention the changes Pyralin has gone through, because her most recent one was back into a man. And he’s no longer a dragon. And he’s WAY different than what s/he has ever been.

I’m glad you luff her boots. 2 And I had a lot of fun with the minis on this series of pictures. "
