**** REVEAL***


Karian Character Board HERE

Helga's Words:

I now have a character crush on Bea and Karian! 
Tracey, I loved painting this and as with Bea, it is such a special project - but one that I take extra serious because it's so close to your heart.

 I went with a smokey dark shadow that is almost more a mist, to show the Vororbla-energy as something more than a shadow but an ever-present dual reality. 

Karian's light / dark side are reflective of the different natures. Dark: a moody and almost ruthless side of him. Light: softer and emotional with sparks of a fun nature. His mouth too is smile-suggestive in the light side and more set in determination in the dark side.


Meaning and history of Karian's name: (Pronounced as KEH-RIY-AHN) -  Pinterest Character Board HERE

A Nordic (Swedish) name meaning pure.

Bearer's of this name, feel and sense much. There are many things that they do not fully understand, and can possibly be deeply influenced through the thoughts of others without realizing just how  they're being affected. Moods are a problem, as can be highly inspired one minute, and the next become quite irritated and annoyed over some ill-timed remark or lack of consideration on the part of someone close to them. They may experience suffering, caused by being abandoned and sacrificed at the hands of others. It is overall a tough and challenging name to have. He has a certain flair and charm that he tends to abuse. 

Karian (Persian: also Romanized as Karīān, Kareyān, and Karīyan; also known as Kariūn) is a village in Karian Rural District, in the Central District of Minab County, Hormozgan Province, Iran.

Greek spelling - Carian - The Greek historian Herodotus recorded that Carians themselves believed to be aborigines of Caria but they were also, by general consensus of ancient sources, a maritime people before being gradually pushed inland.

Soul Number: 11    Expression Number: 5

People with theses numbers tend to fight being restricted by rules and conventions. They are usually optimistic, energetic, intelligent, and make friends easily. They may be changeable, restless and rebellious.

Author's words:

Helga has perfectly captured Karian's the inner conflict of both light and darkness. This is an area that he has extreme difficulty coping with. He refers to his karma (Vororbla) as a shadow that haunts him, never able to shake off pain from the past.

The tree and falling petals are relevant to book two ~ Awake in Purple Dreams
