Astelle, Keeper of the Tomes

Here we are at last for another installment of the Leaves of Hellebore series, I’m still building a plot and this particular character’s introduction is integral to the main story which will begin to unfold soon.

“Astelle clutches her favourite of all the many books of Loregarde; a large, heavy and ancient tome of which she can understand nothing written within; but the beautifully written script is something magical in itself and captivating in the fullest sense leaving no need to understand, just a strong sense of admiration and wonderment.”

Astelle is the curator and keeper of the Loregarde Paper House, it boasts the largest collection of scrolls, records, tomes and manuscripts in the world and is also a place of learning for the sages.

Situated in the palace district of the Empire’s capital city, it is heavily guarded and entry is permitted only with special permission and even then not everything is allowed to be read by those permitted entry into the building; there is also a small collection of texts from the Eldar days although there are no known persons who can understand or translate them.

      1. You as an artist definitely inspires me and your blog is one of my favorites. You are an amazing artist of fantasy art and just building characters in and of themselves. And I love the fact you love the Renaissance period which you incorporate into your work making it even more beautiful. And on top of all that, you are an amazing writer. You are definitely awesome!!! 🙂

      2. Wow, those have got to be some of the nicest words I’ve had said to me and it really does mean a lot and for that I thank you very much, I’m most grateful! 🙂

        It truly is a joy to connect with like minded people who share the same passions for creating and that ever growing love for art especially in the fantasy genre.

        Watching your character creations and story evolve each day is also inspiring and one of the things that helps to keep me committed to this project, albeit a little slower on the getting work finished side of things haha.

        Thanks again Ash, that comment has made my day! 🙂
