Hi guys! This time i entered ArtWar much earlier than last year. One goal is accomplished. And now i just need to draw my work
So my champion is an ancient elf Glynnaera. She's a former priestess and now a sentinel.
Here's her backstory.
Elves of the Silver Forest have got a legend of a sentinel Glynnaera. It happened long time ago, when there was a war with a dark magister Denyaros. The Tree of Ancestors was corrupted by demon's blood. After this the water in Forest Rivers got muddy and began to stink like carrion. All forest creatures got sick and mad. Animals were dying and plants were withering. And only a young elven priestess managed to get to the sanctuary, which was placed inside the Tree of Ancestors. She sat on a sentinel's throne and merged with the Tree's spirit. She heard not voices of her ancestors, but a furious roar of a demon. And here
began Glynnaera's battle with the forces of evil. With all her pure thoughts and care for her brothers and sisters she managed to defeat the demonic spirit. But Glynnaera was so exhausted that she couldn't get back to her body. So she stayed sitting on the sentinel's throne. Maybe Glynnaera joined her ancestors and her body remained only as a shell. Or maybe she merged with the Tree's spirit completely and got the most powerful creature of the Silver Forest.
This legend is over 800 years old. Some elves believe that it's just a beautiful fairytale. But others believe that there is a sanctuary inside the Tree of Ancestors, where their favorite sentinel is sitting. She sees everything that happens in the forest and protects it from an evil. And someday she will wake up and bring the light into this world.
