|My characters, creatures, maps, and other to do with the Shima story. |
A lot of the characters and creatures in the Shima story are based on creatures known as Yokai in Japanese mythology. Follow the link to see a list of Yokai in the Monstropedia www.monstropedia.org/index.php… .
The storyline is that Shima was born a unusual child, spawn of human and Yokai. He mother did not know that her father was a Yokai known as a Tengu because Tengu possess the ability to shapeshift. Shima acquired the ability to use fire at a young age and accidently burned down her home while her mother slept. Filled with passion to save her mother's life, Shima turned into a kite gryphon and saved her mother's life.
While Shima's mum stayed in the town hospital, shima left being known as a vigilante criminal the "fire hound". Townsfolk only saw the four legs and so asume she is a wolf of fire. Shima hides her identity and lives on the street.
Shima gets hunted by the town's loved vigilante who is a mercenary and a bounty hunter. He goes by the name of The Hornet and is a creature known as a Temputsuro.
After getting saved by a boy who later become's Shima's love of her life, the two meet up with other elemental Tengu. Ice, Water, Earth, Metal, Shadow, Flora and Chemical Gases.
Shima's boyfriend is still undecided and the other Tengu are in design. Where Gangsta Teddy fits in is also yet to be decided.
