Victorian Monstergirl: Louise by JessicaElwood Victorian Monstergirl: Louise by JessicaElwood
Third girl of the series. Somehow, I keep thinking of a few humoristic situations happening to her, despise being a tragic character. Desc by :iconmocaw:!



Many years ago, a blacksmith's daughter heard God's call to join the crusades and liberate the holy land. Taking up the armor of a man, the young Louise set off to the East to fight for the Church, painting her shield with a Crusader's cross and wearing the white tabard of the Templar.

Her religious fervor did not last. Soon, she found herself entangled in debauchery and sin, a political pawn of the machinations of the leaders of the Crusades. As a cruel and merciless enforcer of the Templar edicts, her sword became feared throughout the Saracen ranks, so much that it was said that Saladin himself feared her as a Christian demoness made flesh.

Such were the circumstances under which Louise found herself visited one night by a Nizari assassin, who drove a dagger through her heart and slew her instantly. Little did she know, as her heart's blood ebbed from her wound, and the assassin raised his sword for a decapitating strike, that her nightmare had only begun. Re-raised by dark arts, the headless woman's spirit was forced into service on the side of those whom she had fought against, the spectral knight forced to slay her fellow crusaders over and over again in atonement for her sins. It was not until a sorceress found, recovered, and returned her missing skull to her that the curse was broken, and the spell over her destroyed.

That sorceress was named Michika, and Jehanne would be the first of her companions. Louise was by her side when Michika first founded the Moonlight Mansion, and has long since served her as a guardian and enforcer and as an unique treat for these clients with darker tastes, given the headless girl religiously believe that punishment can help her redeem her cursed soul. Louise is well aware that she owes her freedom and existence to the sorceress, and she lives to serve her in every way.

Dullahan girls are tragic beauty incarnate. Sadly, I don't understand emotions well enough to be empathetic (curse you Asperger's Syndrome).

I really like your monster girls idea. And you're right, Louise is like... the perfect target for situations in which hilarity ensues.
Dewani90 Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
being a Dullahan she could win without a fight, Dullahan are espectral headless knights, the legend says that if a Dullahan trow his/her head at you and it passes trough your body, you most likely will be cursed and destined to die, you will not be able to see the sunrise... the more you know...altough only seeing a Dullahan means you or one of your loved ones is destined to die

btw, very well made with soft strokes of color
FrodoGoofball Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2010

the head off the body technique,

love the sword too
korseki Featured By Owner May 10, 2009
.....Damn my addiction to boobed galleries.

Anyway, I just wanted to say I really like your work, and this character in particular caught my eye because I tend to veer towards more tragic stories, and the psyche of a religious fanatic has always fascinated me.
.... Not to mention she brings a level of kinky in the bedroom for those who fantasize about banging nuns but can't really get to it.

A headless character is good for plenty of jokes, not to mentions scene gags chasing her own head.
1Simply2Me3 Featured By Owner May 21, 2008

Love the story too
Very fascinating.

Wow, the story is beyond FANTASTIC, and the art is even more than that. I can not imagine how you have made this so beautiful. I've seen other pieces of yours, and they all look so well done. I don't know why this one caught my eye, but it's beyond awesome. Great job.
