Sailor Judaism, Sailor Christianity, and Sailor Islam. Civilian names: Rebekah, Maria, and Aïcha.
Sailor Judaism has the motifs of the tallit worked into her bows; men are obligated to wear them, but for women they’re either optional or forbidden, depending on who you ask. Sailor Christianity’s weapon is based on the Papal Cross, a ceremonial staff used by the Pope. Sailor Islam’s uniform was designed with the burkini in mind: functional and classy without compromising the level of modesty she’s comfortable with.
Some early sketches for the comic (as well as contemporary sketches of things people were wearing on the train across from me).
Cohen was going to have navy blue hair for a while, until his design settled on the nice stark black/white combo. Bennett’s face changed from flattish and round to square and boxy. The Cybele in the upper corner is probably the first sketch of her adult form.
Kiddie Carlos, from the universe of He Says He Is An Experimental Theologian: having Science Adventures in the park, with his daemon, Isaña, in polar bear form.
Their favorite toys are a stuffed pine marten and a plastic Fisher-Price alethiometer. Also, that cardboard armor. It’s handmade! They used the scissors all by themselves and everything.
Where Bianca is our ruthless business genius, and Ann is our twentysomething heroine, but they still end up with the same species of Being as in canon.
…I don’t know that this one actually follows a lot of logic, character-wise. Mostly I just wanted to draw a very different set of forms for these two Beings.
