This is the problem I have - I read a lot, but not books by authors anyone else knows about. Closest I've gotten was looking at reading 1984, and I've read another of Neil Gaiman's book- but I wasn't that taken by it anyway.

21st March, 2005. 7:22 pm. My character, Elandri
LJ Username: luvloz
e-mail: (VALID, PLEASE!): lozza@BonBon.net
Max rating of picture?: PG
Have you read the rules?: Yes
Personal gallery: http://luvloz.deviantart.com
Eyes: Green, with the thin yellow tint to the outside of the iris.
Hair: Brown, down to mid-back
Physical description: Elandri looks mainly human, besides the fact her legs merge into something similar to a horses leg. She also has a facial and stomach tattoo, and a scar on her right shoulder.
Accessories: She wears a pendant which is a symbol of her tribe. There is a plaited stand on hair on her left, beads are tied at the bottom.
Personality/backstory: The Opakii tribe (of which she is a part) are a small group of maybe 100 who live on a cliff near the sea. They are humanoid in form, but they are not from or on Earth. Elandri is the chief's daughter, so she lives a very regimented life and will eventually be forced into an arranged marriage. This doesn't sit well with Elandri, as she is a very strong willed girl. At some point in the future she will fight with her father and leave the tribe. I see her travelling all over her world, meeting a variety of different characters. She is quite friendly and very intelligent.
She is an apprentice mage, who specialises in healing. As her story develops she will learn more of her gifts and the way they can be used by the different people she meets. She is still rather nieve about the way the real world opperates, and is too eager to help out people she doesn't really know.

15th October, 2004. 11:26 am. My Gryphon, Fessonia
LJ Username: luvloz
Valid e-mail: lozza@BonBon.net
Max rating of picture (G-R): PG
ABOUT YOUR CHARACTER:
Type of mythic: Gryphon
Subspecies/breed: Front half is based on the Crimson Rosella and the back on a white Bengal Tiger.
Eyes: Black, with blue feathers surrounding.
Description: Fessonia is the size of a house cat, so smaller than your average gryphon. Head and upper chest are covered in feathers. The rest of the body is based on a tiger, so she has four paws, NOT two paws and two talons. Wings are generally a bit smaller than average gryphon size. Wing colour is red with black markings, then black the blue for flight feathers. Underside of feathers is black for all stages, with sheen of matching topside colour.
Accessories (clothing, jewlery, weapons, etc): Two earings in left ear, joined by a chain which dangles with an emerald charm at the far end. Gold bracelet on right leg.
Preferred environment: Australian Bush
Personality: Quiet and gentle. While she's normally quite serious herself, she likes to hang out with funny and cute characters, as she still has a sense of humour and likes to laugh. She has two magical powers: lightning and the ability to cute-ify.
Anything else we should know: I've been playing with the idea of giving her an anthro form, so if you want to give that a try feel free.
