Purgatory Spirits by DragginCat Purgatory Spirits by DragginCat
These are spirits that live in Purgatory in my story, a dimension that acts as sort of gray zone (norly, there really is no color there) where the dead can't pass on. Usually if a character has a near death experience or something, they will be transported here and need to find thier way out using their own wit if they want to be revived. Literally nothing lives here, cept these guys of course! Their names are Vi, Mor and Pera, 3 spirits that serve as escorts for lost souls in this realm. They are all deer themed, cuz I dunno deer seem to always be like reoccuring symbols of life and death i guess |D
You may have seen Vi here Follow Me by DragginCat or…

Vi (left) is a malevolent spirit that represents life and suffering. She is very childlike, energetic, cocky, but also very sadistic and decieving. The black stuff that seems to drip underneath her feet is actually her life force leaking, since she was once cursed by a Demigod for defilement. The worse her thoughts are, the more the life force leaks. Therefore she needs to constantly eat souls to sustain her life. She uses her innocent appearance to decieve others and trap them, so she can eat thier souls later. She can also gain more life by dragging souls into the underworld where D-mon, an Archdemon, rewards her with more life.

Mor (center) is a benevolent spirit that represents death and serenity. He is the one that helps lost souls cross over or resurrect themselves. He is very calm and sincere, but cannot reveal his true intentions so he can only give advice to lost souls. When they arent doing much, Mor and Vi are often seen together contemplating about existential topics, despite them being total opposites of each other.

Pera (right) is a neutral spirit that represents the the stage inbetween life and death. She's actually considered a Demigod since her powers excel those of a mere spirit. She is also the gatekeeper of Purgatory and is the main judge of whether or not a soul is allowed to pass on.

If a person regains thier life back from a near-death experience they lose thier memory of this place, so they can't report back which spirit to follow. So therefore Vi can keep eating fresh souls without others knowing about her true intentions beforehand :iconimhappyplz:

How can I past this up!
Genius that you used the deer theme. As it is used for many life and death related things.
Now, Vi is my favorite one when it comes to her info about her. Talk about looks can be deceiving. You sure put that into meaning! I love the concept of the draining of the life force. That very cool and unique. 

Mor! Ahhh, his design is very enchanting. Nice use of the horns he has. My favorite part about him. And to be the opposite of Vi. Man! Truly awesome.
His info suites very well with his concept. I will choose him any day!

Pera, Once again nice use of the horns. She does looks like she can be gatekeeper. I can just image how she will stand next to the gate. Keeping a watchful eye on each soul that passes through. When uncertain about one soul, she turn her head slowly and raise her hand telling that soul to turn around. 
Ahhh, I just cant get over these designs I lover them!
Forgive for lashing out on these beautiful characters of yours. You have done a great job indeed!
