This is my first sketch of a Celestial Spetatrix. They are the opposite of the Celestial Knights because their duty is to simply observe and record the life of their assigned human.
For one specific Celestial Spetatrix, her task was a sorrowful one because she had to watch the worst “human” of all – the Fallen One. You can read about this particular Celestial Spetatrix and her plight in my novel Souls Triumphant.
(BE WARNED! If you click on the image and read the notes written next to the sketch, a MAJOR plot revelation will be exposed.)
These characters and sketches were originally conceived for a short story back in my creative writing class at Illinois State University. The above notes are from the 1998 journal I used in the class to flesh out ideas.
Oh, and if you look very closely at the sketch, you’ll see the Celestial Spetatrix holding a pair of “goggles.” At one point, these “goggles” were going to be a major plot device, but I cut them out in order to make the Celestial Knight’s sword more relevant.
