Abani, after the fall of the Rajpa and a few months on the road. By this point in her journey she’s learned how to deal with Demon Boy and figured out methods to stop him from getting the best of her (she still has a few months to go before she’ll be able to control him and keep him locked in his tiny cat form).
Dealing with Demon Boy has taken a toll on Abani. She’s unfortunately become more solitary in nature, her words more to the point, her tone when dealing with crap much drier, and is very tired most of the time. She’s drained, both emotionally and physically, but her drive to survive-to beat Demon Boy and to take charge of her life-prevents her from acknowledging that she needs a break. The fact that it technically isn’t possible for her to have this break, while Demon Boy is still bonded to her, also prevents her from acknowledging how drained she is.
She has also become a lot more self preserving and less willing to walk into dangerous situations (though she will help others if she feels that their need for aid is genuine). She prefers the wilderness now, rarely going into towns unless she absolutely has to (such as when she needs to sell things she finds), and has found ways to survive without much coin. She doesn’t pry, she keeps to herself, and is in desperate need of company that isn’t a murderous demon man.
On the plus side, dealing with Demon Boy has made her magically stronger and it has forced her to become street savy and into someone who can hold her own. She also now appreciates simple joys in life and doesn’t take anything for granted (though she’s still very much ‘put others before me’ sort of person when it comes to her own personal feelings).
I will probably redo Demon Boy’s True Form (it just isn’t working for me so I have to change it but I wanted to get this piece finished, even if it doesn’t look quite as good as I wanted it to be :/ )
But yeah, this is Abani’s current look.
