Nova as Princess of Lepus Picture

Nova as Princess of Lepus

Lepus, the hare:
An ancient constellation that has traditionally been pictured as a hare or rabbit. The constellation lies under the feet of Orion, so in mythology Lepus is usually being hunted by Orion. Another story tells of how Lepus was once a bird who was changed into a hare by Ostara, the Goddess of Spring. Once a year the hare was allowed to lay eggs, this is the origin of the Easter Bunny. The word Easter is derived from Ostara (Ostern in German).

Nova is based on this constellation and an old pagan myth/neopaganism( in wikipedia)
In my mind, she is the cousin of the easter bunny

Note: she has her own website which will be revealed in my journal
she also has her own story, which is currently undergoing a rewrite.
she is holding a sword that looks like a carrot, hence the carrot-like hilt next to her.

Note: received help from my little-st sis for this! Much thanks to her!
