"Nakani must be killed. Should she become a darkheart - and I don't see how that could be avoided - the outcome will be disastrous. If you think the Glass War was bad, you have no idea what Nakani Darkheart could do."
— Togamoshu, crime lord
Nakani is one the first characters I got around to describe for my world Genius Loci. I sketched several designs first in pencils, then painted her switching between Painter and Photoshop. The tattoos are magical symbols, and I used the semi-surreal background to indicate her lunacy.
