Based very loosely on Michael Whelan's art for Edgar Rice Burroughs Martian Tales, with a mash up of a dozen other sci-fi influences we created an alien priestess warrior who might inhabit a desert planet.
Her job is not only the spiritual and psychological well being of the people around her, but also their physical protection. She is expected to bare arms when necessary and fight for and alongside her people as well as heal the sick and injured.
