Maharet by Netjeret Maharet by Netjeret
My favorite character from the Vampire Chronicles.

'The woman's vigor astonished him. It gave her an air of infinite flexibility and overwhelming menace. Was she the true immortal? - the one who had never slept, never gone silent, never been released by madness? One who had walked with a rational mind and measured steps through all the millennia since she had been born?'

She let him know, for what it was worth, that this was exactly what she was.
He could see her immeasurable strength as if it were incandescent light; yet he could sense an immediate informality, the immediate receptivity of a clever mind.'
'Maharet crying, that she remembered. Maharet weeping with the soft feminine sound of a young girl. Maharet had never appeared so alluring; her face had been softened, yet luminous.'

'Here was Maharet's long coppery red hair, curling, thick, and the same tall birdlike frame, the same clever and curious green eyes, sweeping the scene.'
(The Queen of the Damned)

Character, books Anne Rice

I love the colours, especially the contrast between the red of her lips and hair and her white skin. :heart:
Is there any special reason why she is holding a snake?
Anyway, very well done. I like it very much. :love:
