A reskin of the reference I did yesterday for both sides. WoW inspired lore incoming!
On the left: Vene, since becoming Bal'kar, has taken up a druidic spirituality. Finding balance within nature and purging or healing that which is imbalanced. His garments and bracers help display his modesty while enhancing his abilities.
On the right: A clone of Vene was taken from a few strands of his fur. After being rapidly grown and forged into a perfect replica of the dragon on the left, the clone could do nothing but thrash and fight as his heart was pierced with a corrupted nightmare vine. As the corruption set in, his mind was flipped upside down. He became a twisted and corrupted visage of Vene. A nightmare dragon, one of many serving the Emerald Nightmare.
The two periodically meet, and fight. They are evenly matched in ability and skill. Their fights usually always end in stalemates.
