Ref Sheet: Cyphae by nooby-banana Ref Sheet: Cyphae by nooby-banana
Another character sheet! This time it's Cyphae (sih-FAY), the dragon who changes Riley and Maddy. If she were human she'd b... eh, I'd say early 30s. Her right eye is missing because it was cut out by a dragon hunter in order to retrieve the stone inside it. (Every dragon has a small stone inside each of their eyes. It's really valuable in the black market and has some protective traits.) So she's out for revenge against this man and thinks all humans are monsters. And Maddy and Riley got caught in the crossfire of her vendetta mission. =/

Cyphae has an elegant demeanor and is very sharp-witted. She's obsessed with finding the man who cut out her eye and will stop at nothing to find him. However, no one knows how a human was even able to get close enough to touch her before she noticed.

She's such a pretty character and I love how you have made an eastern dragon a villain whether than a typical benevolent one. I'm not a fan of today's media portraying all dragons as evil but man, I love when people come up with interesting twists, such as an "evil" eastern dragon. It shows that not all easterns have to necessarily be good or benevolent. I find her backstory to be very sad and I can understand why she is the way she is.

Im not sure why but this character of yours (in my opinion) resembles GLaDOS from 'portal' in almost every way that is not their physical form... Are they sisters? XD just kiddin

Yeah, right now she and my other Eastern dragon character look like Spirited Away ripoffs. So I'm working on switching up their design a bit.

nice picture, Cyphae looks pretty cool, but i thought she wanted revenge on maddy's grandfather, the way i saw it, Cyphae wanted revenge on Will b/c she thought he set her up the night her eye was cut out, but later, Riley sets her straight. i can understand Cyphae wanting to get back at the person who scarred her, but her vengance on Will seems alot more better plotted and subtle. by the way, the theme for Maddy seems nice, i think if cyphae had her own theme, my choice would be "Eva" by nightwish, but that's just me, and i know i say that alot.

I gotta say, I enjoy reading your comments. =) They're always so thought out.

Yeah... I kinda worded that wrong. >_< I posted this before I'd revealed that she wanted revenge on Will, so I tried to make it mysterious without going too much into the story. So it was just simplified to "the man who cut her eye out". But she still wants revenge on Will, don't worry. ;D

And awwww, that song makes me sad. =( It's perfect for Cyphae though!

paulasocar Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2009
oh,okay. i knew you were gonna say the songs is a perfect fit for the character, what with the lyrics and all, "Eva" makes me kinda sad too, another song that seems to go with this story that also makes me emotional is Art Garfunkel's song "Bright eyes". it's good to know a lot of things can make one feel many different moods.

I'm sure someone has already pointed this out....and sorry if I'm reapeating....but you said that her right eye was cut out. In the pic, it shows her left eye with scars on it, so I'm assuming thats the missing one? Just the angle, would make that be her left eye, so...if it is her right eye, the scars should be on the other side. Other than that minor detail, the design is beautiful! I love her mane, and pose especially. Chinese dragons are my fave, :) Nice idea with the stone thing to!

Yeah, I pretty much love Eastern dragons. :love: And thanks a bunch!

But about the right/left eye thing, I was going with the eye you would see if you were looking at her straight on. If you were looking at her it would be the eye on the right side of her face that was cut out. Sorry for the confusion! ^^;
