Zyre and Benu And after so long the OCs come back! Why? Because the last few are little ****s and the amount of design block was ridiculous. Zyre here just needed clothes and tattoos (WHICH IS STILL UNKNOWN so I'm thankful he's got long sleeves to hide those). Benu needed his entire design...blegh.

Think it worked out great though.

Zyre is the pomeii (lizard-guy). He's pretty chill and likes when everyone else is. Often times he'll try to keep the more rambunctious members of the group from hurting themselves. When they inevitably do though, he's there to heal them up. Fun fact: Zyre use to have fire powers, I bet you can't tell that from his design at all (also, his name use to be Infern Orion...yep, it was baaaaaaaaad)!

Benu is a firehawk, so named because they were once believed to be related to firebirds or phoenixes. Sadly, they're just regular birds. Like Zyre, Benu is also chill--as long as you don't pet him. He's very anti-social, and takes a lot of time to warm up to someone besides Zyre.

@Pokemontrainergigi: I dunno if it's bias from recalling the last Benu, but the "mask" design of his head kinda reminds of the falconer masks they put on their birds. He's very pretty!

Zyre's jumpsuit is very concealing. Is that his go-to work outfit or this a common style for Pomeii?

@Lupasolis: Thanks!

It's common as underclothing, though Zyre's not too particularly up on fashion and finds wearing just that enough. It is commonly worn by pomeii though, as it's a synthetic material that's very slick and doesn't catch on their scales. It also helps keep them dry if the climate/weather is humid.

OCs! :D OCs OCs OCs!

And wait *brakes squeal* Did you say "last few" OCs? As in, soon we'll have the comic?! YAAAAAAAAY!

Anyhow, it's nice to meet Zyre and Benu! Zyre seems like he'd be the kind of friend with Saewin where everybody goes, "Those two shouldn't be able to stand each other and yet they're best friends." XD And I love Benu's head feathers! Huh, both he and Zyre were once connected to fire in some way. They were made for each other :)

Ooh, you could give him fire tattoos!

@ReaderWriterNerd&Geek: Sadly there's still kinks to be worked out plot-wise (a few characters I'm changing information I posted here...!) but I have a little mini-comic planned to celebrate getting the main cast (plus a few others) done C:

They're pretty good friends (though Zyre doesn't want to admit it, because he thinks Saewin might interpret it the wrong way). And yep! Both were fire based. Benu use to be a phoenix too! Sadly, he keeps no awesome powers from that </3

That was one of the thoughts! Fire, phoenix, or something like that. But since I'm comicing this, I'm trying to come up with a design that's not overly complicated, but not stupidly basic...also not just "THIS IS COOL", something Zyre might actually get. Though I did some thinking that because he's scaled and/or this is set in a futuristic setting, tattoos might be less permanent, so he could change it (not very often, but occasionally).

@Pokemontrainergigi: Aww :( Oh well. Take your time, no need to rush, and I'm eager to see the mini-comic! :)

Ahh, I see. And yeah, I wonder how well scales hold tattoos. I don't guess there's anyone out there who's tried tattooing a lizard? XD

Anyhow, good luck with the last few bits'n'pieces! :D
