Sudarshan

I’m caught up! Yay!

A few zoologists were exploring the depths of an Indian jungle, searching for…I dunno, tigers? Sure, tigers. One of them was walking far ahead of the others, and this naga watching from the trees thought he’d be easy prey, thinking he was alone. But as he attacked the others emerged, and since he certainly wasn’t prepared to face multiple humans, let alone humans with tranquilizers, he was subdued quickly. Soon the world was buzzing with news of how a live specimen of a creature once thought legendary had been captured, and he began to be toured through several zoos around the world. But as luck would have it, our friend Amelia saw him with a few of her friends at their own local zoo. She was suddenly hit with empathy when she saw him in his enclosure, perhaps because they were two of a kind: wild, mystical, not quite human. She broke into the zoo that night in her werewolf form and busted him out. The grateful naga made clear that he owed her his life and asked if he could somehow help her on her superhero-ish escapades. She happily accepted. He seemed to not have any concept of a “name,” so she gave him one: Sudarshan.

I honestly don’t know what kind of snake he’s supposed to look like. I just liked that pattern. I later researched the actual nagas of Hindu mythology and found that they’re usually king cobras. But I didn’t feel like recoloring him by then. ๐Ÿ˜›

About the Author ()

Hi there! I'm a sophomore in college, and though I've only taken the occasional art class back in high school, I like to think of myself as a decent self-taught visual artist with some writing skill as well. I love fantasy, particularly when it comes to the fun creatures, so my characters may very well be something other than human. Nice meeting you, and thanks for stopping by!
