Nain (pronounced 'Nah-een') is a sturdy young warrior who's earned an impressive reputation as a demonslayer. He kills evil spirits with professional efficiency, and is paid quite well to do so. However, there is a darker side to the mysterious youth... His tactics in battle are advanced, but inhumane. He slaughters his opponents so brutally that some wonder whether or not he is a demon himself. There is something ominous about this vicious boy... I'll give you a hint, his name is an anagram for that of a traditional Chinese demon. The beast he's portrayed with is shishi, the Japanese lion spirit, associated with the ability to drive away evil spirits and bad fortune. The Japanese characters in the corner translate to 'White Dragon', which is my usual online screen name. Mechanical pencil, erasers. posted 5/6/07.
