Nyrva Dragonwood in Alternate Realms
I admit this is the first post I’ve made on here or my main site in several weeks; and long overdue. But hey! I’ve got a bit of a fun one…
Nyrva Dragonwood as a sprite from Gaia Online – existing on Gaia in an account under her own name. (That I obviously own. Amusing; a lot of guys think she is a real girl and try to hit on her! One of these days I may do a post of screen shots on my main Oslaania.net page…)
I’ve recently got more into more online gaming and as a result have been able to have more online presence, especially with respect to my characters; particularly, my original character, Nyrva Dragonwood.
Nyrva Dragonwood’s Primary Realm of Existence is the one I created for her in the fictional world I have been developing for her with the novels I have been working on, and the back story I have been developing for the world to base them on which is now bigger than just Nyrva Dragonwood, or the novels that would feature her. (Just like how the “Star Wars” movies are now part of a huge “mythology” larger than the movies themselves for people into “Star Wars” – as I understand there is now a huge Wiki on the subject and history of that world. Same thing here. Nyrva Dragonwood is just one little character from this world now, I have been developing for her. So what I discuss on my websites is nothing compared to what I’m working on…)
However since I’m playing online and using Nyrva, I thought I would share some of the “Alternate” realties she is now part of in some of the alternate worlds she has become part of as a result of my online play…
Nyrva Dragonwood is who she is… a Female Wood Elf, related by blood to the Forest Elves from her country she was born into. Period.
This is Nyrva Dragonwood’s appearance as I draw her with a brief “bio sketch” as I define her in my fiction. Keep in mind when you see her in other games or places I’m about to mention – this is the character represented – just in an alternate universe.
Here’s Nyrva Dragonwood again on Gaia Online – I play her as herself – just within the world of Gaia.
I have since recently joined the game “World of Warcraft” – as such, Here’s Nyrva Dragonwood as a “Horde Blood Elf” – but just under the name “Nyrva” since they don’t allow for full names on the game.
I have her here, snuck into the territory of the oppressively evil “Alliance” – the evil Establishment who seek to enslave all of the land under the rule of monarchs and the “Church”, etc. so it fits well! Nyrva can’t be a “Wood Elf” on “Warcraft” but she can be the closest thing in appearance- which is the “Blood Elf” — the funniest part is- what they call “Blood Elves” and part of the “Horde” look more like what I would use as “Wood Elves” or “Forest Elves” and make as part of the “Alliance” – what they use as “Night Elves” have green hair, big ears, war paint/tattoos, etc – I would make those guys “Dark Elves” in my story, and make those guys “Horde” on “Warcraft”. But no matter. So Nyrva here is part of the “rebels” or those who are part of the resistance! lol! I love it!
Having a bit of fun with one of the quests… (I loved having these guys! They’d help me beat up anyone I attacked! Was fun to watch, I felt sorry for the monsters…)
I won’t give out too much personal information about my personal playing – but two servers Nyrva can be found on when I’m on are…
I have also joined a PvP server but I won’t say which one… yet! Not until I gain some levels with her! But on Mok’Nathal (PvE/Normal) I have her past level 29 PvE – I do go into PvP battles from time to time and am starting to take duels. I DO sneak her into Alliance territory once in awhile as you can plainly see- I’ve captured two pets from the area so far.
WORLD OF WARCRAFT
Mok’Nathal and Feathermoon RP Data (RP Server) Character Data:
Nyrva Dragonwood is an adventurous kind of girl. She is NOT into the “cause” – she does the quests to “pay the bills”. She considers herself a “Wood Elf”, not a “blood elf”.
Nyrva WILL sneak into enemy (Alliance) territory for her own purposes. She has NO love for the Alliance for them killing people she has loved. However she does not love the war. She does what she must to get by. She does love adventure however…
It will be hard for a Guild to claim this girl for their own…
She wants a Guild of Wood Elves to join.
Another shot of Nyrva in Alliance territory…
How about a conveniently-censored image of Nyrva wandering around in the buff in Alliance country? I have stripped Nyrva of her gear sometimes in-game.
Another shot of Nyrva on Alliance turf…
Nyrva does NOT love Undercity. She believes it is a spawn of Hell and hopes it will fall. She trusts the orcs even less. But she believes the Alliance is also a source of oppression as well. Not wanting the rule of the factions, Nyrva attempts to fight alongside her fellow elves who seek to fight for justice and bring harmony to the realm.
Just for fun, I took a screenshot I got playing World of Warcraft from Undercity then imposed one of my drawings of my character Nyrva Dragonwood into the scene- when I’m playing a little SD sprite on Gaia Online or a blood elf on “World of Warcraft” whether on a PvE/Normal server, PvP, or RP – this is who it’s supposed to be.
This is not something that will normally be featured on Nyrva.org – and in fact, a couple of my other chars are also on World of Warcraft and Gaia Online. I will cover that more in-depth on Oslaania.net itself since that’s more hobby focused. This is more about my characters themselves. But since this is about Nyrva Dragonwood in another world I’m putting it on here.
In closing – let me add one thing- I’ve played for only a few weeks in World of Warcraft -
And it seems that you Alliance players out there, as I play a hunter – the only way you cowardly Alliance players can win in PvP scenarios is to get behind someone and attack. You can never seem to face-on attack your opponents and have a straight-on fight. So I will just make one straight statement:
Alliance Hath No Honor!
Character Bio Card/Info:
Raechelle Greentree – Race of Felinians
Name: Raechelle Alexandra Greentree
Height: 5′ 5“
Birthplace: Pinewood, Oslaania
DoB: 4th Day, 4th Month (called “Aargus”), 1784A,O.M. (Age of Messiah)
Age: 61 Yarr – Which is 61 earth years old. But she is the physical, emotional, and mental age equivalent to a 23 year old human female.
Religion: Messianich Protestant
Social Disposition: Quiet, Socially Conservative Type, Keeps to self. Extremely loyal to friends.
Raechelle’s bio card chart.
Raechelle is of the race of Felinians – a humanoid race of people having cat-like ears and a cat-like tail attached to the rear of the spinal column, protruding from just above the crack off the butt.
She is a secondary, supporting character in my fiction making some appearances but doesn’t play a huge role in the story itself. Though she does play a larger role in some events in the story. She is however one of the more recurring cast members in the story.
Raechelle is a conservative girl and a woman of faith. She is shown here reading her world’s equivalent of The Bible. Raechelle is a seamstress by trade but she is a bookworm and very conservative in her way of life. (I don’t use the religions of Earth in my story but there are parallels of Earth religions in there- there is a religion like Christianity with it’s own “Bible” to it, etc. Called the “Sacred Texts”. Most major religions in the real world has a parallel religion in the world Raechelle comes from.)
Like most of my major characters, Raechelle Greentree also has a “Gaia Sprite” version. She wears only the “starfish” item as shown here. Funny considering Raechelle is actually a very modest girl – not the kind to allow her flesh to show – at least not like this.
This is Raechelle Greentree in a drawing I did of her a few years ago. I attempted to go for a “Chibi” or “Super Deformed” look. I don’t mess around with that kind of art that much so the drawing isn’t exactly up to par with the true Japanese style of those genres. Still….
Overall I’m toying with altering Raechelle’s appearance just a bit. I love her hair color but not entirely her hair style, so I’m considering modifying it.
Her role in my fiction is not yet fully decided. She is to be a supporting or secondary cast member in the story who makes a few appearances in the story.
This is the revised version of Raechelle Greentree as “Mistress of the Dungeon” – the follow up and “redux” of the original shown above and of course in a more natural setting – a photo I shot in a local park.
I really haven’t drawn Raechelle Greentree in pictures related to the fiction yet since her role has not fully been determined, and I’m not entirely sure how I want to use her. However, she is a supporting cast member and she will have her share of appearances, and her interactions with the protagonist of my fiction in the novel I am working on.
More about Raechelle will be put out as it is developed.
Some developmental ideas I am working on right now are safely “under wraps” at this time.
Until next time…
Mychelle Blackwood Bio Info
Bigographical Info and the Origins of the Character Follow
Name: Mychelle Kira Blackwood
Height: 5′ 7″
Blackwood, Oslaania4th Day, 4th Month (called “Aargus”), 1784A,O.M. (Age of Messiah)
Age: 64 Yarr – Which is 64 earth years old. But she is the physical, emotional, and mental age equivalent to a 24 year old human female.
Occupation: Inkeeper’s Helper
Religion: Messianich Protestant
Social Disposition: Free spirit, but with some traditional values
Tribe: Blackwood Felinians
Clan: Wood Felinians of Oslaania
Like the Elves, the Felinians share similar Tribe and Clan divisions.
However, the Wood Felinians are not in danger of extinction as the Wood Elves are.
During the Archanian purges of Oslaania, the Forest Elves joined forces with the Wood Felinians to help save their mutual Wood Elf friends from total extinction from the onslaught of the Archanians who had every intention of kiling every single Wood Elf alive; man, woman, and child.
Mychelle Blackwood is the best friend of a surviving Wood Elf.
Mychelle’s origins, basic “background sketch” –
Mychelle Blackwood is of the race of Felinians. A race of humanoid beings sporting cat-like ears and tails. Aside from the ears and tails, their bodies are very human-like otherwise- except that they enjoy a lifespan that is 3-4 times that of a human, but 1/3 less than that of an Elf. Mychelle is the personal best friend of Nyrva Dragonwood in my fiction and a key supporting character in my fictional works. Though half the age of Nyrva physcally, she is the mental and age equivalent of Nyrva. She is a peer, and is very close with Nyrva in spite of the fact that Nyrva would outlive her by at least a century and they both know it. Mychelle is of the tribe and clan of Blackwood Felinians – like the Elves, Felinians also have tribes and clans. And like the Wood Elves of Oslaania, there are also the Wood Felinians – and in spite of the racial differences physically, the two clans have always been very close and the very best of allies.
It is not uncommon for Wood Elves and Wood Felinians to embrace one another as friends, even as kin folk. They share the same part of the Oslaanian country and share many of the same customs. Mychelle is no exception. She too embraces the culture of her people and shares like customs with her Woof Elf friends – Nyrva being the best of them. Mychelle is a free spirit of a sort. She is a passive, non-aggressive person. But don’t try to hurt her friends or you may bring out the “feral cat” in her! (so to speak)
She is also a woman of faith. She believes in God and that God has a purpose for all His people. Though she is not outspoken about it, as she feels it is a very personal issue for her. She is a very loving and compassionate person. She may not offer much advice but she has no problem lending a hurting friend an ear. She is a watcher and listener more than a talker. But she’s not afraid to have fun with her friends. She always has a smile on her face. Like Nyrva- her immediate family is known to be dead. Mychelle has no known living family and has “adopted” Nyrva as her surrogate “family”. Together, Mychelle, another friend Raechelle Greentree of the Forest Felinians, and Nyrva support each other, protect each other and seek to survive in a dangerous time in their land.
Mychelle is a key supporting character through much of Nyrva Dragonwood’s story, at least her first book. It is not clear yet what extent her role will be in Nyrva’s second book, however she definitely has a planned role.
There was also the thought at some point of doing a book about Mychelle at some point later on. I am undecided on this point.
ORIGINS OF THE CHARACTER AND ARTWORK
Mychelle Blackwood was born out of my interest in Japanese catgirl characters- not “furry” or “anthro” characters, but simple humanoid, human-like girls that sported the ears and sometimes other features of a cat. I never fully knew the reason the Japanese were into drawing catgirls – one thought I had was that it was a form of sexual innuendo. (cat, “pussy” – or “sex kitten” perhaps?) In any case I found the concept strange but fascinating and fun. So I wanted some catgirl characters of my own. My original was a character named “Kitty” which didn’t last long. She was changed into a blue-haired catgirl I called “Niko” (“Neko”, just spelled differently). But I never was happy with how “Niko” turned out and so I changed her again, gave her bright Irish, Kelly Green hair (I am a wee bit Irish meself, Laddy!). I always loved the name “Michelle” but since my catgirl was to be a fantasy-fangled character I spelled it “Mychelle” instead. It just stuck with me and I worked with that ever since. For a time I still drew “Niko” but by then changed the spelling to “Neko” but by 2005 I had retired “Neko” completely and Mychelle took her place completely. My other chief catgirl character “Raechelle” was in her early development at that time as well. Until 2009, 99.9% of my drawings of Mychelle were of her bare naked – she never wore clothes. It became a running inside joke for me personally for 2-3 years. For awhile I retired drawing her nude but now it’s probably 50/50- and some of the old nudes of Mychelle I did are in the process of being redone from the pencil up to conform with my latest drawing techniques.
About the same time the development of my fiction was underway, I had also rediscovered my love of drawing and cartooning. And while my skills at the time were rather shoddy at best I have spent well over a decade working on development. But because I work full time I could not spend more than a few hours a week on this new hobby- and to this day this has not changed.

Conception and Design of Raiya Dragonwood
Conceptual “cel” art of Raiya Dragonwood. The young sister of Nyrva Dragonwood. Raiya is a female wood elf of the Dragonwood Elf clan. She was separated from Nyrva during raids by Archanian Dark Elves during the Inqusition invasions in purges to exterminate Wood Elves from Oslaania. Both Raiya and Nyrva seek to find each other and other members of their family and elf tribe. This is a reconception of the character. There have been earlier conceptual drawings of Raiya (formerly called Ruth, but now “Raiya” in favor of a more “Elfin” sounding name) but this one was created to make her look more like her sister Nyrva.
I will not be sharing too many details about Raiya’s involvements or what happens to her in the story at this time. She was originally to be brutally killed by a Dark Elf. I decided not to do that. What exactly happens to her is not yet fully decided at this time, and even so, is not yet to be fully disclosed. I am beginning a policy of not releasing too much details about the specifics about characters in my fiction — I want there to be more surprises. However, I don’t mind sharing some of the characters who will grace the pages of my fiction, Raiya being no exception. But she doesn’t die, that I’ve decided.
This is all there is for now. Additional works of her will be added as they become available. But on a limited basis. Until the release of the novel, some details about this character are being kept “under wraps”.
In light of a recent copyright violation by a gaming website that decided to claim my character “Shadowmere” as being part of some kind of game, I must stipulate that my black unicorn character “Shadowmere” is an original character of mine created in 2001 for my own original fiction efforts and has nothing to do whatsoever with any kind of role playing games. The origins of my character “Shadowmere” are explained in this article.

Basic “background sketch”
Shadowmere is of the sentient race of Unicorns in my story. Little is known about him, and very few people have spent any real time around him. He is elusive and mysterious in nature and actual sightings of him are so rare he is often dismissed as being a myth – it would like someone in the real world claiming they saw “Bigfoot”. There are individuals fortunate enough to have had encounters with him. The most noted one is the story of the Great Flood of Eethos – he was said to have been aboard the Ark with Noahkhi – the man who feared God and was place aboard the Ark with his family to escape the flood. The “Bible” of Eethos makes a mention or two of Shadowmere’s encounters. Because of this, many of the present day believe Shadowmere was a unicorn that lived “once upon a time” and that he doesn’t exist anymore. In spite of it all- Shadowmere’s rumours and legends have been popular among commonfolk, old and young alike for many generations. It is not uncommon for children to want to dress up as “Shadowmere” for occasions requiring costumes.
Teachers of the Sacred Texts and philosophical scholars of Eethos generally regard Shadowmere as a figure of the Sacred Texts and of Eethoian Mythology, and not an actual creature who exists in the present day. There is the famous story of the scholar who actually encountered Shadowmere but instead of inform his other scholars (due to fear of ridicule and rejection based on the “popular” doctrines about Shadowmere, the discovery of the scholar’s writings about his encounters with the legendary beast did not surface until long after his death, as found in his diary in his estate by his family and friends. In the world of Eethos, Shadowmere is a famous source of inspiration for artists and poets alike. But since little is known about his actual appearance, the artistic works vary. However, they all depict a mighty black unicorn that appears in the dead of night. Some of them depict him as a dark and frightful creature. That is the dark side of the Shadowmere Legend- some believe him to be an evil beast and a daemon, and an encounter with him will spell certain doom for the unfortunate victim.
Shadowmere in reality is a fair and gentle, wise beast who is benevolent in his dealings and actions. He does allow the occasional living soul a chance to know him. But since he desires worship of the Almighty and not himself, he keeps such encounters to a minimum, but he only allows people to know he exists and that he is not the scary, evil creature some fear him to be. Shadowmere can also be a quite happy and playful individual as a unicorn in spite of his age and demeanor. (“all work and no play…”) But he takes seriously the role given him. He watches those whom God would have him watch over. And he prays for the souls of people he encounters both good and evil. In spite of the worst rumours about him, Shadowmere has never harmed a living soul. In the story as written, Nyrva Dragonwood is one individual who has one of those rare encounters with Shadowmere. But to dispel many rumors and misconceptions about himself, Shadowmere, in the books Nyrva Dragonwood appears in allows himself more extensive encounters with living souls so that new stories about him can be told, and some of the old rumors put to rest. Nyrva’s immense love and fondness of unicorns is one factor that compels him to giver her a rather extensive set encounters with himself. But he rarely bothers with scholars- just like the one mentioned- none of them ever use the opportunities he has given them. Many of them are quick to dismiss them with their own sets of “learned reason”.
The black unicorn Shadowmere – one of my original characters. A recurring side character in my fantasy.
I drew him in pencil and photoshop. His pose was inspired by similar pose of a horse doctored up as a unicorn in a book by horse photographer Robert Vavra. (His books provide great references for drawing both horses and unicorns.)
The moon-bow was something inspired one night as I was walking home with a full moon and saw a full moon in the sky with a full moon-bow. So I decided to create one for mood in this drawing but of course, there’s nothing like seeing the real thing.
Photoshop was used for the background.
ORIGINS OF THE CHARACTER
Shadowmere originated back in 2001 when I wanted to come up with some unicorn characters. He was originally a neutral character, neither “good or bad” and he orginally was so mysterious it was not possible to know anything about him. Original drafts of the parts of my story where he appears depicted him as a frightful creature people were afraid of. But that was toned down to just him being a mysterious black unicorn stallion. Unicorns in my story, while not “magical” as they are in most stories are Divine servants of God. So any powers they have are “given” them “from Above”. Thus Shadowmere would have to be a good guy by nature.
Shadowmere’s name was inspired by one of my all time favourite computer role playing games that was out on the old Apple II computers in the late 1980s, “Wrath of Denethenor” - the use of the name is an “omage” to “Wrath of Denethenor” and is the name of the city you visit in the game to find the doorway to Mystenor- the mystic dark land where you take on and finally defeat the evil wizard Denethenor.
Even though my unicorn’s name is borrowed from a game, my character itself has nothing to do whatsoever with any kind of game; unless I decide to create my own game based on my fiction some time in the future, or license someone else to do it. “Any resemblance to any other character of similar name or appearance Is purely coincidental”. My character “Shadowmere” is not a standing “property” in and of itself, but it simply a character in my fiction and that I draw, and then he is a supporting or secondary character at that, who makes some appearances in the story I am writing.
(I always wondered if “Denethenor” was borrowed from “Denthenor” of the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy? But I wish someone would make a PORT of this to the Macintosh or the Playstation 2! Serious! That is an all time favourite game! If I ever win the lottery I’m going to approach some people about acquiring some “rights” and hire the original game creator as a chief consultant and director! Imagine it as a 3D high end fantasy RPG that plays like a first person shooter (perhaps in the playing style of “Grand Theft Auto” or “Kingdom Hearts”) And this time add a spell that lets you throw those damn wizards like they do to you on there! haha!~ But anyways. And I still love to rob every vault I see on there! haha!)
About the same time the development of my fiction was underway, I had also rediscovered my love of drawing and cartooning. And while my skills at the time were rather shoddy at best I have spent well over a decade working on development. But because I work full time I could not spend more than a few hours a week on this new hobby- and to this day this has not changed. So I do the best I can with the time I have available. But as a result of my growing and changing drawing skills, Shadowmere was another character that underwent many developmental changes. But he was always a black unicorn. There is a limited amount of artwork of Shadowmere available because I always found him to be a difficult character for me to draw – an all black unicorn from horn to hoof- and I wanted him to look a certain way. My first drawings of Shadowmere began to surface along with my first writings about him in 2002.
In spite of other galleries I may have on the web, this is the OFFICIAL website page for this character! All other information can be quickly dismissed. This page contains artwork and all information currently available about the character.

Shadowmere has several encounters with the protagonist Nyrva Dragonwood, a female wood elf who is extremely fond of Unicorns. And they know it too. Despite the fact that she comes from a tribe of elves already on high the “endangered species” list, she literally risks her very life in the story for a rare opportunity to meet the Unicorns, including the mighty Shadowmere, in their own forbidden homeland; the Valley of the Unicorns itself.

Statement of Origin and Legal Basis Regarding Shadowmere Character:
Regarding the origins of the character Shadowmere, as depicted and represented on both Oslaania.net and Nyrva.org
The character “Shadowmere” as depicted on both Oslaania.net and Nyrva.org is an original character created and initially developed by the owner of these websites as early as 2001. Actual artwork of this character can be documented as early as 2005 with legally registered copyright of said artwork in 2007 with the United States Copyright Office. The registration includes artwork of a black unicorn stallion under the name of “Shadowmere” under said copyright. Shadowmere, as depicted on these websites, is a black male unicorn stallion, and not a horse or brown mare, and is also a supporting character for a novelization that has been in the works for over a decade. The major reason it has taken so long Is because of the amount of time it has taken to develop the characters as well as the back story, and the novelization itself has undergone several rewrites. There are currently no plans to change or omit this character from the planned novelization. He has also been a part of the creator’s online presence since 2007 on various websites including Oslaania.net established in 2010. Shadowmere has also appeared on Oslaania.net’s predecessor site “swarmingspirits.net” and other sites used by his creator as far back as 2007. Those sites and galleries however are no longer in use.
A New Beginning on Nyrva.org
Redirecting the Artistic Focus
Getting back to the roots here on Nyrva.org This site is about my original character Nyrva Dragonwood, and related characters art and fiction related to her and her fellow characters.
I’m not going to pull any punches here. Put bluntly, I’ve wasted too much time and talent on drawing hentai/echhi art of my characters over the years instead of what I’ve really wanted to do with my art and characters and focusing on the fictional elements surrounding them. As a result I’ve only attracted people interested in downloading “free porno” pics and not people who are interested in art and fictional ideas, etc. So that changes now. Nyrva.org has been wiped of all previous content to allow two things:
1. I want all previous content to disappear from Google and other search engines and allow for a complete makeover of this site’s image and focus. Since I am the site owner, I can see all the stats that relate to this website including IP addresses, where people access from (city, state, country, etc.) – that stuff is really cool to see because people come from all over and it’s really great. But I’m tired of “pornographic” searches (the kind that make you want to tell whoever is accessing to “get a girl/boyfriend!”) from google being what leads people here. So I want that to change. I want it to be more about art, fiction, fantasy, etc.
2. The focus of this site can focus more on my characters, art, and the story they are involved in, rather than showing off the “skin” of fictional characters who don’t exist to begin with.
“In the Forest Thick” – the character and art dBase- has been blocked from all access for the time being until all google search results for the site sufficiently disappear. The site itself will change a bit. It will be the only portal for Oslaania.net and Nyrva.org to feature any true “adult” content (full nudity, erotic content, etc.). But it will be forever closed off to search engines and only be accessible from internal links here on the site. The rest of Oslaania.net and Nyrva.org will be PG-13 sites.
However, here on Nyrva.org, I DO reserve the right to show occasional full anatomically correct character nudity. (Which will be more rare from now on). Parents may wish to consider whether or not they want to allow their children access to this site, along with people offended by such content. However the majority of art on this site will from now on be “PG-13″ in nature.
I do want people to take interest in this site. But I want it to be more of an art and fantasy focus, not a porn focus.
The new Nyrva Dragonwood banner graphic of her wearing a bikini.
Nyrva is of the dying race of Wood Elves in the country of Oslaania in her world. Her tribe, the Dragon Wood elves, is one of seven of the Wood Elf tribes and clans of Oslaania – once one of the largest, now it is nearly extinct. The Dark Elves of Archania, in who formerly held control of Oslaania, destroyed the Wood Elves for leading a religious Reformation- the Reformation of Eagis (their world’s parallel of the Great Reformation of Martin Luther in our world)
The slaying of Nyrva by the Dark Elves would be considered a great victory as they believe destroying the females of a race will be the fastest way to destroy the race. Aware of this Nyrva’s struggle to survive is a daily one. And yet she seeks to find what’s left of her family and her people, if any of them still live.

In my story Felinians are the miners, craftsmen, etc. and are assigned the general roles commonly given to Dwarves in most popular fantasy. (Since I generally don’t like Dwarves I replaced them with Felinians in my story). I have assigned the name “Dwarves” in my story to be a derogatory word used to describe the half-breed children of humans and elves. The fictional universe my characters come from has a book that is a parallel of the Holy Bible in our world referred to as the Sacred Text that forbids Humans, Elves, and Felinians to inter-marry and/or mate. This is not a problem with Felinians since their DNA is not compatible with the other two races anyways. However while friendship among the 3 races is acceptable, it is considered a high taboo in most cultures to have inter-racial couples between the 3 races or for sexual relations. So a child born of human-elf breeding is called a “Dwarf” and often treated as a social outcast and reject.
Nyrva Dragonwood – Poster Girl Shot 2009
This has become the almost iconic poster-girl shot of my female wood elf character Nyrva Dragonwood – and is the official poster girl shot of Nyrva.org’s parent/sister site Oslaania.Net.
This drawing was never finished. (Still in the works) It was/is to have Nyrva Dragonwood drinking coffee and talking with some friends. The other friends are still being decided on (who will be with her) and then the conceptual work and drawings have to be done in addition to the desired background.
The black Unicorn, Shadowmere – A recurring Unicorn character making several apperances in the fictional story featuring Nyrva Dragonwood.
My elf character Raiya Dragonwood in a forest scene – the young wood elf sister of Nyrva Dragonwood. The age equivalent of a 9-10 year old human girl Nyrva last saw her as a real little girl. Raiya still remembers Nyrva as well but thinks her big sister is dead. Will the two sisters both live long enough to find each other again?
Nyrva was given a strange “tip” she doesn’t grasp until later in te story – “If you want to find the Wood Elves, you must search within the forest”.
The “forest” is not what Nyrva thinks it is or a literal “forest”.
Raechelle Greentree Mistress of the Dungeon 2011 Revised for 2012 – the 2011 version had her robe open near the crotch area to “suggest” she wasn’t wearing underpants but without fully showing her genitalia. This 2012 version has been updated with a closed robe.
Raechelle (name is “Rachel” just with a more “stylized” spelling) is another supporting character in my story who makes some appearances though her role and fate have not yet been entirely decided. She’s one of the “good guys” for sure.
Raechelle Greentree “Up Close and Personal” 2008 – an up close, personal shot of Raechelle’s face.
A slight “redux” shot of Nyrva Dragonwood reading the “Sacred Texts” of her people. (Their world’s version of “the Bible”) As she reads about God and the things the Archanian Dark Elves forbade her people to read during their powerful reign, and the Revelation of their Messiah – Nyrva notices the gathering of an unusual audience. Nyrva is very fond of Unicorns. For her to have an audience of Unicorns – and one of them being Shadowmere, one of the oldest and wisest of them all, whom very few beings ever make contact, only encourages Nyrva to hold on to what her enemies once forbade as “heresy”. I added Shadowmere to this scene to make Nyrva’s glance make more sense.
She is attended by Almaya (left), a mare, and Shadowmere (right) Stallion King of the Unicorns..
This was an original crossover I did of my character Nyrva Dragonwood on the site Gaia Online. When i joined 3 years ago I thought Gaia was some kind of RPG with anime-themed sprites so I made an account named after my character Nyrva and got props to make my avatar look like her. This is from their game “zomg” (I don’t care for the title because of the game’s casual, vain use of God’s name) ,
General Mayhem from Gaia vs Nyrva Dragonwood – Nyrva now wearing a cheesy outfit added. she was originally butt naked. General Mayhem Defeats Nyrva for selecting “Hard” level then claims her for his trophy.
This however would be an example of an outside-story crossover and not part of the normal fictional universe Nyrva Dragonwood belongs to. (with the exception of the panel on the left, and the gaia sprite of her on the lower right corner, all the characters and art are drawn by me.)
Nyrva Dragonwood was conceived by me in 1997 and 100% totally, legally belongs to me.
OK, moving on…
Raechelle Greentree at a bus stop in a crappy town not worthy of mention.
We got Raechelle waiting for the bus… which means “we’re out of here” until next post….
That’s all I have for now… Until next post…
