I wish I wasn't so cooooold, I'd like to explain a lot of these doodles more in depth. My deviation artist comments have been neglected lately because usually, I've already splurged all the character and story relevant information on tumblr.
Lets start with credit for the characters that aren't mine:
Puka (top left) belongs to *CircuitDruid
Wystic (under) belongs to *Wolfy-T
And Aryian, who is apparently my favorite because there's a holy hallelujah lot of him, belongs to *beastofoblivion
Those were all gifts or doodled strictly out of boredom. Aryian/Gale interactions are so relaxing to poke at and Beast has never complained, so I just poke poke poke poke poke.
MOVING ON, those pictures of Gale in the jacket with a beard are his future counterpart. (Gale is an old character, born in Ancient Greece, he has lived up to present day and for shits and giggles I've been drawing a space traveler variant of him too. I identify each time period of Gale by the name he went by at the time). 'Space Gale' is known as Tio. I'll freely admit that I made him almost exclusively to play with beast's Lockjaws.
The doodles of Maron/Gale/Tio and Aryian are completely non-canon. They're just for fun things that we toss back and forth to pass the time and chill out.
The dragon thing is Bog, you ought to already know him.
My hands are freezing. That's plenty of insight. XD If you want to see sketches and read their enormous blurbs on a regular basis, you'll have to watch my tumblr account. [link]
The lioness, Planca, hasn't been properly introduced to deviantart yet. She needs a ref sheet. Her backstory isn't completely worked out, but the rough version is as follows.Anything below this could be considered a spoiler.
Planca is a cursed lioness. She was a maneater who prayed primarily on ancient Greeks (Spartans, to be specific, after her cubs and pride-mates were destroyed). Planca is a spiteful character who never fully recovers from the loss of her kin. It will eventually kill her. The patron deity of Sparta curses her after she pushes her man eating too far. She is doomed to starve to death, but first her face will grow so long it drags the ground, and her feet will swell to clubs. The skin is tightening to a point that she can no longer open her mouth all the way. Her teeth have been turned to gold (and will often be depicted as filed down, though for a while they're just mushed in all directions). Her claws have been turned to gold, and will also be depicted as filed down.
She and Maron (Gale's ancient Greek name) have a complicated relationship. For a while they'll have a complex bond but one of them will betray the other. Planca is a tragic story and quickly becoming one of my favorite OCs. I never dreamed I'd favor a feral lion character, I thought I had outgrown big cats years ago, but Planca appeals to me in a lot of ways I can relate to. This is especially true in her inability to let some things go.
She has some significant ties to Gale. The circumstances of her death are intense enough that they will essentially mar him for life. Planca's name and objects strongly associated with her (most likely objects carved from a specific olive tree) can be used to bind or hurt him. She'll even manage to instill a minor fear of lions.
As a character she represents an absolute
inability to forgive, and she'll teach Gale an important lesson about holding a grudge. She's meant to help shape him into the character he is in present day.
Eventually I won't post spoilers like this anymore. XD But honestly the telling of ANY story related to Planca and Maron seems so far in the future that I don't really care. Hints about her will be dropped through Buca Switch (I hope) when the comic eventually reboots. I still have so much world rebuilding to do.
