This is my second participation in the ArtWar contest. Last year I created a hero, but this year I'm joining the dark side . My character is going to be a fire-starter with a thirst for vengeance. The style is going to be steam punk, semi-realistic.
The story takes place in Victorian Venice. Kiara was abandoned by her family and transferred to an orphanage. When a girl turned 14 she started to develop supernatural abilities. Fires started to occur frequently and pretty soon everyone at the Orphanage realized that Kiara was the reason. They started to fear her and had to kick her out on the streets to preserve their safety. Poor girl had to learn how to survive on the cold, cruel, and dark streets of Venice on her own, knowing only violence and betrayal. Her only friend is an old crow that she rescued from abusive street hooligans. As Kiara reached adultery she learned to control her abilities and became thirsty for blood and revenge. Anyone who dared to stand in her way of sweet revenge was burned to ashes. As such she became known as Flaming Lament!
Good luck everyone!
