Luna, quieres ser madre,
Y no encuentras querer que te haga mujer
Dime, Luna de plata,
Qué pretendes hacer con un niño de piel.
Hijo de la Luna.
De padre canela nació un niño
Blanco como el lomo de un armiño
Con los ojos grises en vez de aceituna,
Niño albino de Luna
Luna, you want to be a mother,
But you can't find a love to make you a woman
Tell me, Silver Moon,
What do you plan to do with a child made of skin.
Child of the Moon.
Of a cinnamon-skin father, a child was born,
White as the back of an ermine,
With grey eyes instead of olive,
Albino child of the Moon.

I think I must explain this one.
I posted the song because I love it (I'm sorry for the bad translation), and because it inspired me to draw this picture. In the translation, I used the word "Luna" instead of Moon because I wanted it like that, as a reference to Luna, the spirit of the Garou.
Now, let's get to the story:
I'm storytelling a pre-Apocalypse story, and the things were going in the good direction for introducing the Perfect One, a flawless metis.
The prophecies tell that he will be born of the love of a couple of metis, which would be a sterile love. It will be the savior of Gaia or the savior of the Wyrm, depending on who you ask.
Anyway, the concept is the birth of something beautiful and flawless from an abomination, a violation of Gaia's laws.
As anyone who knows my character might imagine, the adult one is Chiara, who is a Philodox, a keeper of the law. But she was also born in a Black Spiral hive, so she wasn't educated the same way most Garou are.
And she is in love with her own brother. She only slipped once. It was the day she passed the rite to become an Elder. She met her brother while she was celebrating it, and she just let herself go. She will never forgive what she's done. She's broken every law: she has commited incest, she has mated with another Garou and with someone belonging to the Wyrm... and everything while she was celebrating to be good enough to be a Philodox elder. Isn't it an irony?
Now she has to hide from her fellow Garou. Many want her and her son killed, and they don't even know the full history (she never told who was the father).
And the father of the cub is not in a better situation. When they became corrupt, the fur of the Black Spiral Dancers had turned black as ashes, like it had been burned... But the cub had the pure white skin of the White Howlers. That mustn't be something good.
Actually, I stopped storytelling for a time before the Perfect One was born, so I've made this picture in advance... But it inspired me too much, so I've drawn it of ideas that I have in mind, even if it has not happened yet.
I know it's difficult to think in Chiara as a mother, and not just because she's a metis, but I think it's interesting too. I like to make plots that implicate important characters in the game rather than bringing a new unknown character to scene. I think that plots are more effective then. And the weird relationship that Chiara holds with her brother was too interesting to leave it unexploited.
And, before anybody says something like: "Garou females don't have breasts in crinos" I know. But they do have when they are giving birth a metis cub. And this is the case. I know her breasts don't look OK, but I'm still learning to draw garou.
Please, comment. I need critique and advice to continue learning, because I'm new to this style.
