khajinah suggested Oliza next (I was probably going to draw her next anyways) I started out drawing her with red eyes because I forgot that they were gold except in her demi form, so then I decided “Fuck it, I’ll make a gif for her red eyes”
The Dasi’s altars were scorched, frozen, shattered–only ruin left behind–and their priests and priestesses struggled against the magic that cut their bodies and souls.
They cursed Maeve, who had enticed Leben into giving them these “gifts,” the magic of their second forms. When people began to die, the new serpents blamed the falcons–those who worshipped death, sacrificed to it.
Magic and blades and fire and blood…so much blood, soaking into the red sand.
“You say you wish to end this,” Kiesha said, greeting the falcons.
“Before more lives are lost,” Araceli said.

Black hair frustrates me. It really does. It’s supposed to look that messy but… ugh idk. So I always figured that after Hai embraced her father’s heritage, she decided to take his last name too. And then becomes bffs with Salem because I want Hai to eventually be close with her family.
The first thing that comes to mind when you think about Hai’s look is black. Grays too but definitely black. But she is so much more than that. She’s Cobriana red, too, and purple, the Serpiente color of mourning. She’s so much pain and suffering, and strong gold. She is far more than just dark monochrome.
