Character Sketch
Tyleet, the only child to be born to the Wolfriders during the Palace’s long absence, is a gentle yet persistent Wolfrider, eager to take risks in accomplishing her ends.

Her name means Healer’s Gift; her unrecognized parents, Redlance and Nightfall, sought help from the powerful healer Leetah in order to conceive.

Tyleet’s soft heart extends especially to humans, with whom she is convinced peace and good relations are possible. She adopted a human infant, Little Patch, and raised it as a Wolfrider. His human nature asserted itself, by inclination and inevitability—but he left two worlds the better for it.

As calm as her father, Tyleet is not above breaking rules if she thinks it’s for the good of the tribe. Tyleet is not reckless, though she admitted that she acts first and thinks of consequences later—Scouter’s overprotective bent emerged after their Recognition. Tyleet, Scouter, and Dewshine formed a three-mating, cementing the bond by voluntarily exchanging their soul names. Two years later, she gave birth to her son, Pool.

After the War with the Djun, Tyleet and her family chose to follow Ember back to Howling Rock Holt, where she studied tanning and raised her son to adulthood.

Meaning, Elfquest at Emerald City Comicon. In less than a week (March 28-30) we will be up to our pointed ears at ECCC 2014 in Seattle, and there are three events you won’t want to miss. Saturday at 5:40 pm there’s “Self-Publish or Perish: All-Star Edition” in which we swap Tales from the Script about indy publishing. Then Sunday, 1:00 pm, we’ll be signing (especially copies of the just-released “Final Quest” #2) at the Dark Horse booth. Saving the best for last, Sunday at 4:00 pm there’s the “Elfquest: The Final Quest” panel, where literally anything can happen (and probably will). Read the rest

Elfquest – The Long Run Podcast #5

elfquest

The Long Run takes place outside of the “View From the Gutters” normal continuity of episodes, and features table discussion of an entire work or long selection of a series. In the fifth episode of this bonus series, they talk about Elfquest, by Wendy and Richard Pini. For this episode they read the first three story arcs: The Original Quest, Siege at Blue Mountain, and Kings of the Broken Wheel. (The audio player is at the end of the introduction.)

“Greatest Cosplayer of All Time”

WP Sonja

It certainly has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it? And whether or not you agree, there’s no denying that Wendy Pini is one multi-faceted lady. A cosplay pioneer before the word was coined, co-creator and artistic force behind “the first American manga” Elfquest, imaginatrix to the re-envisioning of “Masque of the Red Death” into a futuristic musical thriller-to-be. Good reviews are always appreciated. Good and respectful reviews, now those are rare treats! Read one here.
