Deltora Quest - Jasmine+Kree
Emily Rodda’s Deltora Quest took up a significant portion of my childhood/early teenage years, as it did for most Australian kiddly-winks of my generation. If you’re a member of the unlucky populus who have not yet read this series, it’s the story of a sixteen year old boy, Lief, who embarks on a quest to recover the 7 missing gems of the magical Belt of Deltora and find the missing heir to the throne to rid his country of the super evil Lord Supreme Sunovabitch, the Shadowlord. Along the way he picks up some friends: Barda, a grumpy bearded ex-palace guard, and Jasmine, stubborn-ox extraordinaire wild girl (plus her pets (fluffy mouse thing called Filli, and a raven called Kree). I think Jasmine marks the beginning of my love affair with angry bratty heroines.
NOW GO AND READ IT.
I heard that someone out there created an anime based on the series, and I got all excited. Then I saw the character designs and
They are not good, you guys.
This is how I imagined her to look given her description in the books. I reject your anime reality and replace it with my own.
Oh min gods! I remember these! They were the first novels I ever read!
