The Dream Guide by Acaciathorn The Dream Guide by Acaciathorn
Allow me to (re)introduce one of my favorite OCs, the Dream Guide. His backstory is pretty simple: it's his job to ferry people from place to place inside their dreams.

He wears a scarf made of words, which constantly transforms as the script of your dream unfolds. :heart: The design on his shirt is both a simplified ribcage and a scorpion, and he wears skull makeup to ward off evil forces. But don't let his sinister appearance fool you - he's pretty cuddly ;) :love:

His name changes from dream to dream (he appears as a slightly different person to everyone he visits), but you can call him either Lucidus, RÍvien (from the French "rÍve", or dream, and the verb "revenir", to return) or Kevin LOL :w00t:

P.S. in case any of you were wondering, my own whacked-out dreams provided the inspiration for this character. Since I met him while I was asleep, I guess that makes him my animus? I'm not particularly cued-in when it comes to dream psych terminology...

He looks so gorgeous. :love:

Can you explain me a little bit about him like: personality; is he good or evil; what does he do and stuff...

He's pretty cuddly ^^; His appearance can be disconcerting, but he is a protective/guiding force within the dream world. He sort of hovers in the background of your dreams, giving you a subtle nudge in one direction or another, to make sure you get from point A(falling asleep) to point B to Point C to Point D etc. until you reach point Z(waking).

I wish I had a guide like him in my dreams. I always get lost in my dreams. One time I was dreaming that I was inside something like a huge church but without the icons, candles, etc... and the next thing you know I ended up almost on the top of some kind of a mountain, wearing shorts and a T-shirt, and I couldn't figure out how I ended up there so fast. It was very confusing. I also have a lot of falling dreams.

I have a lot of dreams where I have superpowers, especially waterbending...but as the dream progresses, I slowly realize that having powers is impossible, and I start to lose control of them as a result.

i love the creativity behind this! especially the fact that you designed his image (mainly the scar) to reflect the character and back story that you have given him. I enjoyed looking at this :D its always great to see artists put some good thought into their work ...great job! :w00t:
