Bone Arrow: Character Collages

In re-working of my Amerindian inspired Fantasy novel, Bone Arrow, I’ve created character collages that visually represent aspects of the central characters and surrounding themes.


Sunktokeca: Protagonist and warrior-shaman, sent to defeat Ska-Sicanagi, destructive spirit released by the antagonist, Khangithanka.


Khangithanka: The raven god and bestower of power to shamans. Antagonist to Sunktokeca based on a prophecy declaring Sunkotkeca’s power is akin to the gods despite no pledges to Khangithanka.


Yalse: The Trickster and coyote god, opposing force to Khangithanka & Sunktokeca’s confidant. Important to the outcome of the quest but his motivation is unclear often forcing confrontations with Wazichan and Mastinca.


Ska-Sicanagi: A malevolent spirit released from its binding by Khangithanka and sent to challenge Sunktokeca. If Sunktokeca is defeated, Khangithanka will defeat Yalse and maintain dominance over the shamans.


Mastinca: Sunktokeca’s oldest & most loyal companion. Pivotal to the success of the quest.


Wazichan: An exiled warrior, highly skilled & fated to join Sunktokeca’s quest. Wazichan openly opposes the manipulation of Sunktokeca’s life by Khangithanka and Yalse.


Hinhan: A powerful, dark shaman from the southern islands and creator of the bone arrow Sunktokeca requires to destroy Ska-Sicanagi.


Wakinyela: The love of Sunktokeca’s life he must abandon to defeat Ska-Sicanagi.


Iyaka: Sunktokeca’s jealous step-brother, determined to ruin Sunktokeca’s honour & opposition for Wakinyela’s affections.
