Hey hey @expectedoperator could you post a description a physical of Harja and the three gods again? I want to practice my drawing skills on Harja (poor them).
I’m sure it’ll be great!
I don’t go too much into the gods descriptions at first to give them that distant, incomprehensible feeling, but here’s some of the descriptions within the story so far:
Orihark (Goddess of the Hearth):
- One of the women looks middle-age with laugh lines around her eyes,
Ilatsal (Goddess of Art):
- while the other is in her prime and has blotchy skin
- in her eyes are eons lived.
- Appearing in the mortal form of a blotchy-skinned woman in her prime
Sarpet (God of Dreams):
- The man looks to be the same age but has a disagreeable sharpness about him
- his figure sharp but moving with a certainty that Harja has yet to obtain in their mortal form
- Appearing in the mortal form of a sharp-looking man in his prime
- Now before you is only a person, their hair red and their appearance in age close to your own. Yet even in that mortality, that commonality, there is a refinement to their features that only the proud kings and queens of old could boast. They look at their own hand with awe and dread
- Their head is in their hands, red hair tangled around their fingers. The low light of the oil lamps makes the strands glow like fire upon ash
- you point out as you turn back towards your breakfast, suppressing a grin towards their common clothing that the nobles wouldn’t use for rags.
Also, while it wouldn’t really show up in how they look in their mortal forms, age-wise it’s Orihark, then Ilatsal, then Harja, and then Sarpet. Right now Harja’s still trying to figure out their mortal body, but they do carry themselves/have an air about them that’s more restrained/mature compared to Sarpet.
I hoped that helped!
Harja is older than Sarpent, but looks younger? Did I get this right?
Now I can’t help but imagine the two playing together as children How do gods age anyway? Are they born as adults (case point: Athena) or like babies?
