The summer storm, Sahriv. Only taken me approximately 5 evers to continue the portrait series I planned from the start of this blog, but belated or not–this is the Devavani’s custom, darling little Volt Prime. He’s a high-strung, high-energy, high-maintenance bundle of anxiety who will paw/scratch at his operator’s somatic link pod’s door until it opens, only to curl up and go back to sleep (presumably satisfied that his operator hasn’t abandoned them all in the night). Additionally, this “curling up and going back to sleep” often takes place in his operator’s lap–or, at least, the attempt is made.

A lap dog cat frame he is not, but he has big dreams and you can’t take that away from him.

(Fortunately, Saif’s some sort of immortal void demon child so hopefully suffocation or electrocution isn’t a big concern.)

The difficulty I frequently see for many who try to write in short about the Fetch beast/mate/god, Doubles, and Familiar spirits is that attempts at classification and differentiation between these often subjective experiential phenomena become muddled or nearly impossible without placing them each in proper context within the framework of the soul complex, or the multifaceted Soul. Mapping out such a framework with the aim of proffering a generalized understanding of its schematics is a challenging task in itself, as each thread or tradition of witchcraft varies by degree, region, and cultural influence with respect to its views and precepts regarding the multi-part soul or multiple souls. Such as it is, most writers (and published authors) simply sidestep any endeavor at digging deep into the particulars because, simply put, the subject can be complex as hell. That, and I imagine some may be bound by tradition to maintain a modicum of secrecy regarding inner teachings. All these are significant reasons why such tradition-bound concepts lose nuance, are easily confused, or made prone to misleading conflation when generalized and divorced from the context of specific witch traditions.
