So, I hear that Kobolds are in recently, and I needed an excuse to draw something more scalie.
Oh, Jia Jing Fei, I can't keep your design in one place.
But I hope this'll be the last time I redesign you, and to make sure I redraw you sometime soon might as well turn you into the scalie version of a Shortstack.
Yeah, I'm surprised it took me this long to get around to Kobolds too.
For some reason the once dreaded and nasty little scaled Dragonkin from Dungeons and Dragons suddenly became a go to easy characters to draw that everyone loves.
I'm going to say it's mostly the shortstack logic of cute and sexy (while also being legal) and I've taken noticed.
So since I wasn't doing anything with Jia's raptor design, I upgraded (or downsized) her into a Kobold.
I also combined both of Jia's previous designs, but keeping the warmer colors of the 1st design, while keeping the clothing design of the 2nd incarnation.
Despite how deep that "red" on Jia's clothes are, that is actually orange, I guess my marker just makes it look like a blood orange color.
I think the orange and yellow looks nice as I didn't want to over rely on red, and much like the color green, I have very few personal characters that rock orange.
Jia also ditched the nunchaku for just pure fighting with elemental flaming fists and feet.
Because giving a Chinese Warrior Princess psychic powers seemed like overkill to me.
So Jia Jing Fei is now a Kobold, and I think with her newer design and now becoming a shortstack, I might get around to drawing her more than once a year.
Name: Jia Jing Fei
Birthday: April 1st.
Height: 5’ feet.
Weight: 100 lbs.
Species: Firebranded Kobold.
Clan: The Jing Fei Imperial Family/Fire Lotus Society.
Relatives: Her father and mother, Emperor Jun Jing Fei and Empress Meilin Jing Fei of the Sphalerite City.
Special Ability: Pyrokinesis.
Within the beautiful walls of the Sphalerite City lays the ruling figurehead family of the Jing Fei clan.
The Emperor and Empress were blessed by their loving daughter, Jia Jing Fei.
Jia was born a rare white scaled and red spotted Kobold which was seen as a sign of great luck to her family.
In the history of the Jing Fei family the Firebranded Kobolds are some of the most powerful members of the clans' 3,000 year lineage.
These Kobolds tend to be direct liked reincarnation to the ancient guardian dragon of Sphalerite City; Huolong.
Thanks to this ancient dragon blood flowing in Jia's veins, she was granted with the powers of Pyrokinesis.
At a very young age Jia has difficulties controlling her flames since they are directly connected to her emotions.
Because of this fact, Jia very quickly had to learn to repress her emotions in order to keep her flames at bay and not accidental burning her subjects.
Jia trained with her mother and father from many years in order to control her powers.
When training Jia quickly realized that Firebranded Kobolds are immune to getting burned by fire, and are able to absorb flames to make themselves stronger.
As Jia aged and finally got to grasp her powers and controlling her flames and other open flames at will Jia asked for further training with the Fire Lotus Society.
At first, the Emperor and Empress were worried, as the Fire Lotus Society tend to get into direct combat with bandits, possible invaders, and the seedy Black Lotus Cult.
However with Jia's very calm and even tempted personality they both said yes, allowing Jia to finally get that much-needed actual combat use of her flames.
From then on, Princess Jia Jing Fei became a high ranking member of the Fire Lotus Society, hunting down the Black Lotus Cult from her country of Chun-Nan.
Thanks to her hard work and efforts Kobolds has been getting more favorable looks and compliments throughout the land.
Jia Jing Fei is a noble soul, she is normally very calm and level-headed, but tends to conceal her true feelings.
She is often described as elegant, which is demonstrated through her body movements and her Kung Fu.
Being royalty, Jia is quite mannerly and typically maintains a relatively quiet, stoic and formal air among others.
She tends to have body language less casual than most others, always standing tall and straight, carrying herself with pride.
She also usually speaks in a polite and lady-like tone.
While honored of her heritage as royalty, Jia is down-to-earth and dislikes being called by her title.
Jia gives the impression that she keeps her emotions in check, she is inwardly highly emotional.
She possesses a fiery temper, and when she rarely loses her composure she is quite frightening, aggressive, harsh, and prone to making bad decisions.
She is similarly very serious about her position as princess and role in the Fire Lotus Society as when dealing with enemies, she never holds back her strength and is not above the idea of using lethal force.
Her intensive demeanor however, is motivated by her own genuine concern for others' safety.
In truth, Jia has a kind heart, and always stands up for those who cannot stand up for themselves.
Like all the Firebranded Kobolds within the Jing Fei clan Jia is able to use Pyrokinesis.
Jia was born with the power of pyrokinesis, the ability to create and control fire in any way she desires.
This ability is so deeply rooted in Jia that her soul itself is alit with flames thanks to the blood of the ancient dragons.
Though Jia initially had trouble controlling her flames, she has since become very adept at using them.
Handling her flames delicately enough to creates small embers in the palm of her hands or defrost frozen others without harming them. Jia's control over fire is not limited to her own flames, but also those in the environment, allowing her to bend foreign flames to her will.
With her pyrokinesis, Jia can conjure up flames at any place on or all over her body for various offensive effects, such as turning herself into a burning projectile, forming a cloak of flames or increase the damage to her blows.
She can even ignite and raise large columns of fire from the ground from afar.
Offense aside, she can also use her pyrokinesis defensively by conjuring up fields of fire around her as protection.
She can also use her flames to propel herself forward, increasing her speed and/or granting her limited flight. Jia's pyrokinesis also gives her complete heat resistance, making her invulnerable to all types of flames, such as those in the environment.
Thanks to this ability, Jia can absorb flames to power herself up and get even stronger because of it.
