Vivian the Suit

This is Viv. She’s a guild member. I like her design but I don’t know much about her story. Currently, she’s a recipient of a fae-dragon deal. This grants her powers that are essentially pocket sand but with dream sand. Her powers require her to get close to people, so I figured she knew martial arts like Krav Maga. Maybe she’s part of the Guild’s secret services? If so, I might have to age her up. I like her casual look, it makes her look all innocent. I have no clue if her role in the story will be villainous or not. She’s meant to have gold decorations in her hair.
