Guardian of Death by Farphyni Guardian of Death by Farphyni
This isn't only another "Guardian"-drawing from my series, it's also a personal piece, so I'm going to tell you only the most important things.

The young woman, Nytheria, grew up in a world full of war. Humans against Humans, Humans against Beast, Beast against Beast. The only one she trusted was her fellow, the wolf-cat Giomanach, who she has found before her parents died in the war. She left her home and went through the silent battlefield, looked at all the bleeding and dead bodies.
She travelled through the land, saw war, hate and pain & with 18 she decided to clean the world from all the blood and dead bodies. So she started to burn down the battlefield, that new plants can grow on the ashes.
...After her human body died she lived with the shape of her Soul-Creature and continued her never-ending project. After a while she was chosn to be a Guardian and had to commit suicide to leave the physical body, to become a real Guardian, a spirit-creature.

...but some people and some beasts are telling, that they've seen the ghost of the humanoid Nytheria, wandering through a battlefield after a large war...

About the charackters:
The pale & black and green dressed girl is a kind of witch. She's called Nytheria, but since she has chosn her way, she prefers to called "Krähe" (that is german and means "Crow" in english"). At her stomach she has a raven-tattoo, which glows green when she uses her powers/magic.
The wolf-cat hybrid next to her is Giomonach, "the Soul-Hunter". He can turn into a raven and he has lots of symbols allover his body (They're also glowing green if he uses his powers)
The black creatures coming out of Nytherias soulfire and her shadow is her "Soul-Creatures" (the body is only a shell, her real shape is the creature). It's a kind of demon and similar to a raven-gryphon. It has green-glowing symbols all over his body and it can breathe green fire and create lightnings with its two horns (on the forehead)

About Nytheria as a Guardian:…
