Real life inspirations for Alteil cards

AnnaTheRed saw this while playing Okami, but it seems that the real life inspiration for Water Emperor / Legrye is the massive oarfish!

Check it out!

Wow, that's a pretty crazy looking (AND BIG) fish (or is it an eel?).

So Legrye is actually a giant fish, not a dragon :lol:

Then again, Retear's old form was a dog... so maybe Legrye has a "true" dragon form as well O_O

The Leonardo thread inspired me to post this here.

Lilith

Image
Scylla

Image
Fenrir

Image
Dagon

Image
Gerasene Demon (Legion)

Image
Opps, I mean...
Image
Echidna

Image
Hanuman

Image
Brahma

I thought using the Hindu gods was a pretty cool idea for day lycans lol, kudos on them for thinking of that.

Seraph and Angel are slightly more broad for depiction.

And plus it isn't proper for you to post **** here, for this is the Victorian Era. Shame on you. *Throws a glove on you.*

Alteil is pretty much well balanced. Sometimes you loose and sometimes the enemy wins.
