After creating Magni and his granddad, I felt like giving avatars to the other devices that came to live with me over the years, too.
Yes, that is a scorpion’s tail Idunn casually dangles off her bookcase. Don’t mess with my laptop, she’s outlived most other hardware in my possession and is still going strong. So I thought the ageless goddess of youth would be a good namesake for her.
Magni and Odin you already met. I believe both would agree with the description I’ve given them and see it as a compliment – while they each would consider the other’s title an insult.
Given the job description for a NAS, an obese dragon seemed the perfect avatar for the last resident of my desk.
Priscilla isn’t sure why, but over the past week the children in the castle seem to have been hiding more sweets for her to steal. This has put her in a good mood, even though lately she has found precious little shinies to add to her hoard.
Took me long enough to finish.
I hope you liked this little comic and Priscilla, even if it wasn’t like my usual work.
You can find the full comic here.
Now that she has been coaxed out of her hiding spot, I believe it is time to reveal a bit more about the newest cast member.
Priscilla is Louis’ slightly overweight pet fairy dragon.
These love-children of a lonely komodo dragon and a drunk butterfly fairy dragons are the size of a large cat, and get their name both from their fairy-like wings as well as their mischievous nature. What they lack in size they make up for in cleverness and magical power. Like their larger relatives, fairy dragons often collect small object such as coins or other shiny trinkets. They can get quite obsessed with growing and protecting this hoard of theirs.
Fairy dragons can make very loyal pets, and – due to their intelligence and magical aptness – can even become powerful familiars. Generally, though, they are considered difficult and unpredictable and only fit for very experienced and dedicated owners. Certainly not a beginner’s pet.
Priscilla is quite old, she has been in Louis’ family for over two generations now and she is generally docile and good-natured. Louis’ parents still had to pull quite a few strings at the ministry to get him permission to bring her to school.
