Original Character: Moljka
Moljka – 14 x 17″ . The Serbian word for ‘Mantis” ( the insect: Praying Mantis). A sort of storm trooper. This was part of a Gung-fu War story. An army of ‘Mantis’ fighters, ( symbolic: referring to the rivalry between Mantis and Tiger styles), versus farmer women (the Athuli ), who were abandoned by men drafted for a war overseas, leaving the women to do all the heavy lifting themselves; a nearby giant cat species, sort of like sentient horses; which bond and protect some of them. Enabling a Mantis vs Tiger story; using giant muscled women, versus moderately athletic women; in sort of cartoon violence, and pre-code horror scenes. This particular design, was for a War General; and the scythes, were designs, for forearm weapons that were wielded like tonfa’s – except with blades. Protecting the hand and part of the forearm while wielding sabers. Some characters that were part of the Moljka , ( former military, that join other elite organizations after boot camp) are featured in Clandestine warrior groups; Jindra, Kitagami, Carrenna, S’jera, Wynpera and Skerrah.
Lore: Athuli Women Warriors
This particular paradigm- of the all woman village/plantation: was the story for the Athuli Women Warriors Comicbook/cast/ I designed. A hierarchy, with titles: such as the Matrioks, Judikons, and Justicari’s, were the main focus. With males from the occupying kingdom – Talaridor: once at the “Height of Splendor”, now a corrupt empire, representing abusive invader/ conquerors, which constantly massacre the Athuli farmer women- various tribes; demonstrating real life historical accounts of Japanese soldiers actions in China, treatment of the native Americans by conquistadors and other indigenous people vs colonists wars.
Talaridor, Athuli, are lands in Quarantine World Nine ( planned to be presented as a mainstream PG comic – with lurid pre-code horror scenes ( massacres) featured exclusively at the Lurid Max website; to subscribers.
