Sea Dragon Knight Picture

This is a fan art about Japanese manga/anime Saint Seiya drawn by Masami Kurumada. My version is very different. The story happens in Greek mythological era. When the Olympian gods fought the Titans, each god formed an army of knights. Hephaestus created all the armors for them. Athena only had 48 knights (according to the number of ancient constellations). When the war ended, half of Athena's army was dead. The survivors became rogue knights because their service was no longer required. Just like the original Greek version, Athena chose to mingle with other gods on mount Olympus - leaving humans at the mercy of mischievous gods and dangerous monsters. Each ex-Athena's knight then handed down their armor and power to their descendants or relatives. Although the war against the titans had ended, people still needed savior because sometimes Olympian gods caused havoc. Hence, the knights were still in business of saving lives.

Speudon is my original character. He's the Sea Dragon Knight and one of Poseidon's 7 generals. His rank is second highest after Chrysaor. Among all, he is the most temperamental general and the most merciless. His hobby is to punish the humans who fail to honor Poseidon. He'll send his pet monster - a Plesiosaurus or sea dragon - to wreak havoc.

One day, when he enjoys destroying a fishermen village, a dragon slayer comes who turns out to be Andreios - the Draco Knight. Andreios nearly slays Speudon's sea monster. Saving his pet, Speudon challenges Andreios in a battle to the death. After hours of exhaustive battle, Andreios wins. Knowing that Speudon is immortal, Andreios instead gives Speudon a deep kiss on the lips! Although Speudon considers himself as a bisexual, the thought of being kissed by a man is something unthinkable. Meanwhile, not far from the battle site, the mischievous god of man-to-man love - Eros - flew away with a naughty grin.
