Translated into Basic as the “Demon of the Depths”, it’s also known as “Water Demon” or “Demon Fish” by the people. The creature is a massive predatory fish that swims the oceans of Dromund Kaas.
On average, the adults can reach up to 10.7m (35ft) in length and weigh up to 22,680kg (50,000lbs). With shimmering black scales, six pearly-white pupiless eyes, spear-like teeth, and a bioluminecent lure on its tongue, this creature was the source for many tales and stories when Dromund Kaas was first settled.
Demon Fish are notorious for their foul temper and the tendency to attack and eat anything that gets in its way. Luckily, these fish live in the deepest depths of the ocean and it is very rare to see one near the surface.
However, when one does come up to the shallow waters, it’s tradition for Sith to come together to hunt and kill the beast. The black scales are light as shimmersilk but tough as durasteel, thus it is used for Sith armor when one is killed. The meat is cooked in various dishes that are served only to the most distinguished and honored Sith. The lens in the eyes are prized as ornate gemstones that go onto become decorative pieces in art or furniture. The teeth are used as a source of ivory, used for carvings, sculptures, art, and even decorate the hilts of some lightsabers. It is rumored that the spikes on Darth Marr’s armor is made from the teeth of this fish.
(special thanks to @inquisitorhotpants for the name since she’s the Sith linguist. also ran out of things to say for now. can’t draw. pic under the thing. you’ve been warned.)
tbh the most unrealistic thing I find about fantasy books is that no one ever has an emotional breakdown. Characters go through war zones, physical and or mental torture, get shot at, live in fear of something happening, and sometimes go through a fantasy/mythical version of hell and/or prison camp and they’re never shown having mental health problems? Ever?
I couldn’t even go through highschool without having a panic attack every week and stress induced migraines and you’re trying to tell me teens who go through literal hell don’t have any kind of mental trauma? No panic attacks, self-harming, suicidal thoughts, no ptsd? Never once had a thought that readers might be able to relate to a character dealing with a breakdown?
Even in fantasy people don’t want to talk about mental health.
I love part 6 of Come on Baby, Light My Fire! It's jam-packed with goodness. Do you play baseball/softball? Here's a "Great Balls of Fire" emoji fan aesthetic: 🔥🔥🔥⚾️⚾️🍆👀🔥🔥🔥. xoxo.
Oh. My. God. I spit out my drink when I opened this. That eggplant is by far the best part of that emoji aesthetic. And now I am cackling that someone got my horrible dick joke! <3 Thank you, dear!
Sadly, I do not play baseball/softball. My dad tried to teach me when I was a kid and gave up after twenty minutes, declaring me hopeless. I am, however, a fairly regular spectator of the sport. Aaaaand now both my kids play baseball so I’m sort of teaching them (with help from their dad and coaches). Irony at its finest.
The concept IS grasped…the execution is a little elusive.
