Art by the amazing Krysiilys
So the story is that I initially had commissioned Krysiilys for a dragon design with the direction of basing loosely off my past designs.
My original intent was just to (finally!) have a dragon-like character that I could play around with: HOWEVER---
I LOVED THIS SOOOOOO MUCH- that I asked if I could incorporate them into my main-sona's lore and she agreed! YAY!
THIS ALSO MEANS- that all my Ki-rins can also have an additional "battle-form", as well as having weather-based-coat-changes (if applicable?). (So I gotta talk to Atarashi and aowacc...>.>)
Is it a guilty pleasure to have a mammalian dragon?
Yeah, probably. However- Popular or not, having grown up with the likes of Falcor and the animated Smaug, I have always very much loved mammalian dragons and I've always wanted one.
