Also known as Kyparissia, Cypress is the goddess of ceremony, harmony, and predestination. Cults associate her with seashells, marriage, and pearls.
New Notebook Designs!
I've been storing up digital designs for a while, and I finally launched my Redbubble store! I'm under the name Lenny0! If you're unfamiliar with Redbubble, you'll want to check it out--it's a popular online distributor that will print an artist's work as prints, mugs, shirts, pins, acrylic blocks, and even shower curtains.

Day 20: Persis the Warrior
Her first battle came only two days later. A gang of straggling Demons fell on them, rising from hills of mulch. They had no choice but to stop and stand their ground.
Day 9: Smoke Woman
Black smoke bled through the window, billowing over Shardae’s bed in a great cloud. Shardae backed away as it spilled from the sheets to the tile, and a lounging shape began to take form.
