A piece for my wife of her very first OC, Emerey the alchemist. She's a nekomata with two long purple tails, a love of fire, explosions, and causing all kinds of mayhem. Emerey's mentor, Nyx, lost her body in a potion brewing accident. In her panic, Emerey discovered the formula to create Soul Rubies, the same enchantment that binds a spirit to a gem, allowing Nyx to live on in the body of a magpie. This is the same magic that empowers Cassandra's Zengre beyond the limitations of classical machines.
