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”.
