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 actual name is Lucidus, but he prefers the nickname Kevin LOL :w00t:

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:

You said you met him in your own dreams, correct?

I wish I could meet him in my dreams, maybe then I could have less nightmares. His makeup and clothing reminds me of how they dress on The Day of Dead in Mexico and for the music video Black Parade by My Chemical Romance.
