Bardic Performance by Kannacchi Bardic Performance by Kannacchi
Ahh~ Done! It's been a while since I've drawn something for myself, and this took me the best part of two weeks XD

This is Idris, the Infernal (sort of a demon/succubus thing) bard I play in our Pathfinder campaign. She's not very good at fighting, but she can do a mean Jive. She's dancing in the night club that her adoptive mother, Jayleen owns (owned? I dunno if it's still going to be there by the end of this, Magnimar is being attacked by hoards of undead as it stands).

She's basically the party's resident cheerleader XD

I tried a lot of new stuff with this ^^; It didn't turn out quite how I wanted XD Movement poses are hard D=
The orbs floating around her are a spell called "Dancing Lights"

My friend's keep ripping on the fact there is a pole on the stage XD So I'd like to point out that while the Guilded Cage is a strip club, Idris isn't pole dancing - her mother wouldn't allow it.

I'll post Idris' little background story here for anyone interested...
Idris was left abandoned at the side of the River Yandabakari as a toddler. She was found by a human woman by the name of Jayleen Mordove, a bard and owner of The Guilded Cage, a garish nightclub in the Lowcleft district of Magnimar. Against Jayleen's better judgement, she decided to raise the demon as her own child rather than slay her.

The residents of Magnimar were dubious about having this child in their midst, but as Jayleen was a respected member of society and vouched to keep her out of trouble, they agreed to put their scepticism aside.

In the years that followed Idris studied to become a bard like her mother who showed her the ways of song, dance and music. She became a regular feature at The Guilded Cage with her distinctive red skin and leathery bat wings drawing a crowd of admirers.

Through her mothers influence she became a devout follower of Desna and decided to take her chances as a fortune teller to spread the word of her Lady.

She is quite dubious around males but often feels an instant bond of friendship towards females. This is partly due to the kind of attention she got in the nightclub. The woman who worked there would treat her with kindness whereas she perceived the male patrons as sleazy and crude.

Because she was so young at the time Idris does not remember why she was abandoned, but does not dwell on it, seeing Magnimar as her true home and Jayleen as her mother.
