#2 The Askari Sisters

| November 26, 2012 | 0 Comments

One uses magic.  The other uses sharpened steel.  One dresses in the traditional garb of her ancestors, while the other prefers short skirts and boots.  There are other differences, but what counts is that Mia Askari and her younger sister Teira form an effective team.  Many have sought their services, whether to deal with a troublesome dragon or negotiate with a stubborn bandit leader.

The most recent job for both was to escort a rather ordinary, unassuming young man to the capital city.  The trip was far from ordinary as they faced increasing attacks from a vicious cult.  As it turned out, the young man was actually the prince, who had been placed into hiding to protect him.  Still, he was also skilled with the sword, and now, he has hired both sisters as his personal guard.  Where things go from here….no one truly knows, yet.

About the Author ()

Hello everyone, I'm Marc McKenzie, and this is my second year taking part in of this challenge. I've been a freelancer for the past few years, working in animation and creating commissioned work for clients including the New York Times. There have been ups and downs, but...that's life. Honestly, though, I enjoyed taking part in the challenge last year, and I hope to do my best this year...but I hope that everyone does their best and has fun! Ironically, I never really set out to do art at first. I studied something completely different in college and it was only because of an art teacher that I changed gears. Currently I'm living in Hillsborough, New Jersey, working on commissions, trying to find full-time work, and being a doting uncle to my niece.
