Wonder Woman for the latest Sketch Dailies challenge.
There are stories, myths, and legends throughout history discussing the exploits of Celtic women warriors, particularly among the barbarian tribes of Iron Age Europe. While I’ve yet to read anything confirming how common these battle maidens were, I’m proud of CA for including them in the game. Queen Boudicca of the Iceni led over a 100,000 warriors against the Roman occupation; it would be interesting to know what percentage of these were women.
"What is it? Have you found Drosnur’s tracks?" Emila was hopeful, though the same desperation that had been rising in the others after three long days trying to find their friend had infected her as well.
"No… just a skull." Kosh’s voice was quiet as she studied her find, pulling her gaze from the empty sockets lit by the now too-familiar bright blue glow to study the skull’s grim face.
"No surprise there, we’ve seen hundreds in the last half hour alone." Tandeth was impatient, and in no mood to hear Kosh drone on about what secrets could be gleaned from the clues others left behind in their wake.
"This one bears a scar," the half-orc replied, letting her eyes pass over the damaged bone. "A long scratch from the temple to the place its ear would be on the left side."
"Why’s that important?"
Kosh moved a hand to place it upon the dented skull, but thought better of it and let it rest instead at her side. She could barely find the breath to speak the words.
"Because… when I first encountered Drosnur, he’d taken me by surprise. I grabbed a woodsman’s axe and struck him… Hard. I gave him that scar."
