Nereus- Dragon God of Water by ElementJax Nereus- Dragon God of Water by ElementJax
Nereus- Orsian Dragon God of Water.

Lemme' explain: Each element has an origin of where their powers come from. In this case they come from the actual gods. So the gods are actually all dragons- this is their hybrid form. All

Nereus (or Nirgit as Nola calls him) is the god of water.

The hardest to design of the elemental dragon gods. TOOK me years to be HAPPY with his design. I collaborated Oogway from Kung Fu Panda, Rafikki from Lion King and mixed a newt and a lion fish to make him.

And yes, he does hit people with his stick.

All characters and story Copyright of me
I'm pretty proud of him

I turn myself back to a 8 years old kid, sit down in front of him and ask for tales, wisdom, and anything he says. If the first part fails, can still manage with the second. And being while enjoy the peace.
