Daine from The Immortals series.
I’ve been listening to the audiobook of Wild Magic recently and really wanted to draw her. I’m honestly surprised I haven’t drawn anyone from these books sooner since they played such a pivotal part in my childhood.
have “Daine” Veralidaine Sarrasri in the Tortall Universe
. “Squeak” can be taken two ways here, either a noise she makes in one of the infinate animal forms she can take and combine with her Wild Magic. Or…it could be the noise a person makes when they realize this girl is after them ;)
Alanna is clearly a gryffindor. Brave, idealistic, fond of slaying literal and/or metaphorical monsters.
Daine is a ravenclaw. Curious, intellectually hungry, once stopped her heartbeat to listen to whales.
Kel is a hufflepuff. Loyal, hardworking, pragmatic. Mildly baffled when she gets recognition for doing something she considers her job.
Aly is a slytherin. Sly, clever, would never do something the normal way when she can do it a better way.
Beka is a little harder to pin down, but I think she’s a gryffindor at heart with hufflepuff methodology. She would like to be able to slay the world’s evils in one fell swoop, but knows she can’t. Instead she does her best to stop the small ones.
This took me an embarrassingly long time to finish (got the commission about half a year ago…), but it’s finally done! Daine, Alanna, and Kel in fancy dresses with their weapons of choice, for dredreidel :)
People always talk about Daine Sarrasri being Wonderfully Extra by bringing a literal Zombie Dinosaur Apocalypse and going on a destruction spree, wrecking an entire palace on her zombie dino skeleton steed because she thought her friend was dead and then, when called on it, going “aaaahaha i guess i lost my temper a bit ¯\_(ツ)_/¯”
which like. its fair to call that Wonderfully Extra. but idk what any sensible reader could be thinking to expect much less from her, when in the first book she literally dies to try and talk to some dolphins, and then just straight up handles a pirate invasion by dialing up a fucking kraken. Like the only level this girl knows is the maximum.
