Born from the Sands by M-Jenai Born from the Sands by M-Jenai
Colored this sketch.
Playing around in PS after learning about overlaying textures and what not.

Mai Castille:
Mai, the goddess of Liberty and Strength, is confident, independent yet friendly and welcoming woman. She is always concerned for others and will always try to help in a crisis. She is a great listener and will do her best to comfort those who want it. A nurturing figure and always smiling, even when deep down she isn’t happy. She is protective of those who she holds closest and understanding in most situations. Despite sounding so nice Mai also has a darker side like all people. She can be very manipulative and seductive when need be and can come off cold at times. She is a great liar and very convincing thanks to being around pirates. When she is alone she is often in deep thought or even weeping over her past sins.She does nothing cruel for the sake of being cruel. Every man she’s slashed down or even offered her body to was for the sake of improving the lives of others. She believes as long as others are happy and safe, she’ll carry on with her methods.

Mai is in charge of a small armada composed of ex-assassins, ex-pirates, freed slaves, and mercenaries. These men (and a few women) travel with her to fight and liberate the oppressed people of Damatta. They use their talents to help Mai. They respect her because she ignored their sins and saw the men for who they are rather than what they are or were. Mai isn’t exactly looked at in favor by the government considering she fights their soldiers often but the people love her. She is a wanted woman despite being a goddess and is constantly on the run or fighting to stay from behind bars.

This is a beautiful sexy woman... Not an overly exaggerated.. or effeminate, and androgynous fantasy... This is exquisite!

Oh, I love that your character isn't a thin woman with enormous big breasts. She really looks believable and erotic, but also a bit dangerous and after reading your comment I know that noone should underestimate her.

Is she a real goddess or is she "just" adored like a goddess?

She's a real goddess. In my little world god are first mortals and then are chosen based on their actions and thoughts.

Sounds interesting! Something different. So, she became a goddess in her lifetime or is it kinda her second life?

in her lifetime.
Gods get chosen at random ages. Late teens to older is the typical range.

And stay they mortal or do they become immortal? Sorry for asking so many questions, but the concept sounds really interesting.

They become immortal. They can't be killed by mortal hand. Gods can only kill gods. They'll live for as long as possible until they are killed by another god or the Mana within them jumps to another user.

Mana is what chooses a host.
hmm this concept is easier to describe if you watched avatar: TLA or know of hindu mythology/religion. The gods are more host than supreme beings.
Mai's Mana is the mana of Liberty. Mai is more of an avatar for the Mana.

but to make it really easy.
Mai isn't the first god of Liberty or Strength. There were those before her. They were either killed or replaced by the Mana within them. As long as mai does her job well her Mana god will never replace her. She can speak to her mana for advice or the Mana will adress concerns/orders to her.
Some gods are the first god in their line. The god of Time is the first god in his line. When a god gets so old the Mana fuses with him/her. They are no longer separate things. The Mana could break away from that god if it chose to however it's a far more difficult task than a newer god. Also the mana god can't take control over their host body anymore when it pleases.

Mai is a newer goddess so her Mana can force her to act or say things she normally wouldn't. When a mana takes control of their host body it's only for a short period of time, as it tires the body and they can't use their powers.

Thank you for the answers. I like your concept.

Are you writing a story, where she is the main character or will it be a comic or none of this?
