|Zango is one of two gods of Kotia. He is the opposite of Ixx in almost every way. |
Breathing stars into existence, Zango created the planet and the solar system. Because of this, he is seen as the god of the night. Zango can be very zealous for worship of him. This causes him to become enraged at those who do not worship. His anger peeks when people chose to not believe in his existence. It is at that time, that Zango reveals himself and unleashes his fury. He is also a god of justice and governs without mercy. When tribes as a whole become complacent or accepting of immoral practices, he punishes them. His favored means of punishment is plagues. Of all his titles, Zango is most known as the god of death. This is because one of Zango's biggest roles is visiting the dying to snatch their souls away and take them to their appointed place. Because of his reputation, the Jicels worship him in the hopes that he will aid them in battle by taking the souls of their enemies.
Zango is often seen as the more powerful god, but despite this, Ixx is equal in power.
Although it is presumed he can, Zango never speaks in mortal tongues. He despises any sense of lowering himself to the level of mortals. This is probably why Zango seems to take pleasure in installing fear into the hearts of men. Even though Zango enjoys retrieving souls, he despises it when they die by evil means and it fuels his wrath.
Zango isn't fond of Luca, but understands the necessity of his existence.

Notes on Character DesignI received the question pictured below at my tumblr blog. In case it's useful to anyone here, I decided to go ahead and use this otherwise dormant journal to share the article I put together in response.Notes on Character Design by tracyjb
Character design and drawing are tome-sized topics and even if I had all the answers (I don't - I have a lot to learn), I'm not sure I could communicate them effectively. Here are some thoughts an ideas that might help, though.
First, some general things...
Let some of that anxiety go. This isn't a hard science. There's no wrong way, no rigid process you must adhere to, no shoulds or shouldn'ts except those you designate for yourself. This is one of the fun parts of being an artist, really - have a heady good time with it.
- Be patient.
A design is something gradually arrived at. It takes time and iteration and revision. You'll throw a lot of stuff away, and you'll i
Dragon Mage II: Chapter 27 - Formal RequestAs the stew cooked over the fire in the kitchen, Serene sat at the table and spoke with Eric and Rebecca. Eric was listening intently as she told what she could.Dragon Mage II: Chapter 27 - Formal Request by Steve-C2
Judging by Serene's expression, she did not like saying what she had to. It didn't reflect that she did not want to say anything, but rather that what she had was little, and the end result was not happy. “I wish I could tell you more, Eric, but I visited your parents no more than twice. Your parents were typical, and when I first visited, I could sense that there was an intense love between them, and you. I hate to admit this, but I read their thoughts much more than what I probably should have. If anyone had asked, I could have justified doing so. I know that I haven't read anyone's thoughts in a long, long time.”
She frowned. “Nonetheless, what followed was the hardest thing I ever had to do. Your parents had been overjoyed to have you. Very rarel
Dragon Mage II: Chapter 26 - New MemberEric wasn't sure if he should expect anyone, or who to expect through his door after Jasper left. When Tevyn entered, he wasn't surprised. Eric wondered if it was a common thing for new Council members to have a line of other members waiting outside their door to speak with them privately. If so, was it usually of the nature he had experienced?Dragon Mage II: Chapter 26 - New Member by Steve-C2
Tevyn closed the door and stood a foot away from the area through which it opened. “Mr. Townley, could I have a moment, please?”
Eric had not seated himself, and remained standing. “Yes.”
Tevyn looked down, and put his hands behind his back. “Mr. Townley, I want to congratulate you on your confirmation. I admire your statement that you would be honest. You have earned my respect, and the respect of others.”
Eric nodded. “Thank you.”
Tevyn continued, taking his hands from behind him, and folded them in front of him. “Think nothing of
