I'm forgetting something by Zeldeon I'm forgetting something by Zeldeon
YoooOOOOO
So! I've had this character for about ten months now and never introduced her just because I didn't? :'D I forgot how pleasant she was to draw though weeps, I need to draw her more. Though I want to move her earring... it's bothering me... hhhh... edit I fixed it
This is Yumai! Since I've been looking for old/new/ just different characters for Varatia I thought I'd pick up her character and give her a polish. As a sort of unforseen bonus, she had a few similarities Lyss's Soul Legion so I think she's a Soul Guardian now. :>
Her previous character was someone trapped in a pendant and bound to do the wearer's command, which was very unfortunately in Taesora's (that's Icy) possession. I still kinda want to keep that controlling relationship though? Perhaps Sora has dragged her butt out of unfortunate situations and she's under some kind of obligation to her. But see I have a problem because I also want to make sure Yumai's been through some sort of punishment from the council and had some kind of personality or memory distortion as a result... :/
...in summary I have no idea what her actual story or relationships are with others cries guys if you want her for a roleplay or relationship please let me know so you can help me out
By the way despite my favorite color being green I sure have a lot of beloved brown and red characters weepsighs

Her colors are gorgeous wow 'u' And I absolutely love the gradient on her back! She's so pretty ahh. I love her hair, too.
And as for figuring out her character, I'd be down for a rp eue Anzu and her would be interesting since Anzu is technically wanted by the Soul Legion!

Thank you Nix! Her hair went through many phases aha, in early images it was curly |D
Yooo that sounds great~ Now you have me curious about Anzu aaahh, who is she and what has she done. But yeah if you're down for it I'd totally be willing to RP~

ahh those colors are so nice :'D The gradient effect is really pretty too, it kind of reminds me of sand hehe
And yay, she's a Soul Guardian! Karribi's been the only canon one for a long time, so I'm really happy to see another. Her character sounds interesting too. The Soul Legion is pretty nasty with their punishments so a change in her personality/memory is definitely feasible. Poor Yumai ;v;

I'd also be up for a roleplay, if you want? ouo

Thank you Lyss! Oh aha I hadn't even made the sand connection but yeah!
Yesss I've had my eye on the Soul Legion for a while now so I was excited to start developing a guardian of my own *v*

I would be down for that! Though it's been a while since I've worked on an RP but I'm sure we'd be able to come up with something~

Welcome! ouo
Well, I can't wait to see what you end up doing with her~ I should probably flesh out the Soul Legion a bit more in the meantime. I haven't actually posted a ton of info about them yet haha

Awesome 'u' We can work something out through notes if you want, or on the forum. Whichever is easier for you~

Aaahhh I would love it if you did that. The more info on the Soul Legion, the better~

Since it's looking like I'll be using Yumai in a lot of places I think the boards would be best, though if you'd like to plan things out through notes I would be fine with that~

Ahhh, what a pretty babe!! I love the colors, omg. I feel you though. My favorite color is red but lately it seems im getting a lot more green charas,, luckily i like green/brown as a color combo,,
But I do like the concept of being trapped in a pendant. Maybe it's sorta a, hate to make a comparison to Steven Universe but I'm trash so let's do it, Lapis Lazuli situation?? Like where the council, as punishment, trapped her into a pendant. And for years, she was forced to do what the wearer wanted. And she'd be real upset about it and just stopped trusting most people and her personality changed and memories faded the longer she was in the pendant. But then Sora came along as was like "well dang there's someone in here. tbh i bet their magic would be more powerful if i took them out of here." and Sora found a way to release Yumai but still have her linked to the pendant??? And, at first, Yumai was like "woah someone freed me???" but then later learns that Sora only did it for personal gain. So like, that controlling relationship is still there and stuff?? I hope that makes sorta some sense,,

Thanks Tori! Ohh man I feel you so much. Brown and almost anything is pretty pleasing to me, I think it just happens to be that a lot of my characters also fall in that red range and I'm so confused by it? But yeah.
Screaming I really like this headcanon you put forward?!!! And I'm totally down for SU comparisons, I'm always looking for links between characters and official characters/things so yes this is fine let's run with it. Since the Soul Legion is Lyss's creation I can'tt completely make things up but there's still tons of wiggle room so- Yumai has actually done something that didn't denote punishment by death but was serious enough to separate her from her soul gem from an inordinate amount of time, so much so that she's practically forgotten about by everyone until somehow she's eventually rediscovered by Taesora, who immediately recognizes a lot of potential here (she's also totally in it for the magical jewelry because that's Sora's thing?? YEAH), but after freeing/reawakening her Yumai has a lot of holes in her memory and her disposition is changed that it's at least a year or two before she's mentally and emotionally mature enough to realize she's been manipulated by the Soul Legion Council, she's been manipulated by Taesora, she's not even the same person anymore aND THAT'S WHERE I CAN CUT TO PRESENT SETTINGS YES.
So at the very least this headcanon is worth divulging in, t h a n k y o u /o/
