Water vs. Fire
Five parts, five natures, five eggs, five births.
Characters from my APKALLU Story, on a much advanced point of the mythos where the expected battle of elementals do happen.
Am I finished with this? No Way! It was done in part as college activity, so it had schedules and directories to follow.

Pariacaca and all others that are water have developed a fluid nature on which this process of becoming common has been facilitated. As such, Hydros as he's originally known, has a multiverse in his hands, and that is something the proud Hualall-Khepri doesn't count...
