Volatile Prodigy by Setzuo Volatile Prodigy by Setzuo
(Version2) - Created more dramatic lighting, deeper, more intense colors, and fixed some anatomy issues. Added more lighting details to clothing and hair, fixed shading problems.

Oxephes Anibe, a most gifted mage who was born with an innate comprehension of the very nature of magic. At 19, she is able to command the ether as if it were an extension of her body, allowing her to perform feats of sorcery long thought impossible by even the most practiced wizards. However, her lack of experience (and training) has set her back as a practical mage. Her errant spellwork and natural talent, mixed with a deep insight into magical theories only graspable by the most knowledgeable casters, causes her spells to have a volatile, unchecked quality. When directed at foes, her power is akin to that of pure chaos. When assisting allies, mishaps are almost sure to happen. Despite her natural talent, she cannot reach the levels of more practiced mages without proper training.

Oxephes spent most of her time sequestered away in an underground catacomb of sorts, which she had hollowed out with her abilities so as to have room to practice and experiment. Upon sensing a multitude of spirits becoming active across Beldern, she emerges from her self-imposed exile to seek a higher purpose.

Itīs a fire with eyes, so "firebeast" seemed the most fitting description. Great mind thinks in the same direction or so they say :XD:

Thanks! I've always seen people saying you can't draw flames that look real, but I think this is a good substitute.
