Concept art for Khora of his grouchy old Beldrobbaen!
Curious, her skin is very dark compared to my Illhar’dro Colonyborn and other dark elves. Is it because of the region or cause she’s just old?
UV levels do get higher at higher altitudes . http://www.sunaware.org/2010/07/28/sun-protection-at-high-altitudes/
Also were Phariastanis herders ? Because she reminds me of one for some inexplicable reason .
I don’t recall hearing or reading that they were herders, but maybe the commoners were. It’s highlands country after all.
Herding would also tend to encourage darker skin , due to animal products having better vitamin D then cereal crops.
Maybe they were herders. But nobody else knows the truth, becouse other dark elfes have been loong dead.
Thalestris : You can’t prove anything , I was there so I know . I’ve always been a noble. Not a shephard!
Some kid : But we were just asking if our people herded animals, not if you did it.
Thalestris : Oh . . . yeah , I owned like 5000 animals , and a 100 bondsmen. But I wasn’t a shephard !
Other kid : *whispers* She seems to deny being a shephard a lot *whispers*
Who can tell ?
Thalestris is of the nobility caste though.
Pharistians lived on a mountain, figure most of them would have darker skin, noble caste or not (which she is xD)
Aravan can sympathize with that. The old ways were better with beach and swimsuits.
my word, she’s gorgeous! :3 her age is conveyed nicely despite not being a bag of saggy wrinkles like Tralyn or whatever.
This concept for chapter 47 or 48? Either way, nice to see another Guard. :) And a dignified one, at that!
Neither, 48 will have her daughter instead :)
…. EEEENTERESTING….. Can’t wait to see what the 48 chapter ends up being. But who cares: MOAR WAES, NAO!
I was wondering who actually bought all the stuff the relic hunters were selling.
The Beldrobbaen are said to have Dark Elves in several key positions. She must be one of them.
