Since he seems to hate his sister, does that mean that he is on good terms with his nephew?

Nope, he’d hate the fact that his nephew aligned with Heaven. “The enemy of my enemy is my friend” isn’t applicable in this case.

So if he ever does manage to destroy Gretchen, he'll go after Macabre and Oliver next?

Let's preface my answer by saying that as they're spiritual in nature, you can't "kill" them. Lillith tried. Anyway, Marduk wouldn't directly target them. He hates everyone enough, so if they got caught in a crossfire, so be it. He has no love for them. I will state that his primary flaw is that despite planning revenge, he's not the be-all-end-all of demonic strength. If he got into one-on-one combat with most Celestials and even Infernals, he'd most likely lose. It's why he's amassing an army instead in Paws of Fury.

Oliver is capable of manipulating the water in the air to swim almost anywhere in mortal realms, assuming that there's enough of it. In spiritual realms, he doesn't have this limitation. Regardless, it is affected by gravity, so he can only "swim" a few feet above the ground.

Wonderful creatures, otters. We had a family of them in a stream behind our house. Some locals trapped them and moved them elsewhere because they though they were killing all the trout. The Game wardens were not pleased even though they trapped them humanely. I was ten at the time - they were a lot of fun to watch but you had to be reeeeeeally careful not to startle them.

I sometimes think baby animals are cute so humans will protect them - sort of like camoflage, a "defense mechanism".

While cleaning up my room a few weeks ago, came across a sketch of daggers that I never bothered to scan previously. I'm sure that these sketches are a few years old by now, but decided to go ahead and finish them up. I'm not sure if these were scrapped designs for a game I'm helping with or random doodles, but the fact that these designs were only in a corner of a full page, probably work doodles when I was bored.

Drew up a Natukat based on the fruit I drew up a while ago. After I posted this on Discord, found that I wasn't happy with the way the lower body looked, but this was meant to be a quickie. Maybe next time I'll take breaks between phases of completion.

The anklewear is unusual, too ... or is that part of the creature's coloration? Very vivid!

Natukats have some traits that are common among all of them, like those "ankle pieces" but each one is detailed based on the fruits they're pollinated from. Chaoko had a whole gallery of different variants here. And as Dayzee said, this one is based on the pattern of the "Celestial Fruit" I posted earlier.

Despite being a demi-god, Caleb still has to deal with his chosen form's regular antler shedding. Almost as soon as they fall off, his antlers lose their vibrancy. Not really painful for him, but leaves a bit of a mess, and he never truly feels right without his antlers. He's also careful not to let this happen in mortal realms. Celestial blood can be harmful to mortals.

Not properly shown here, but I'm going with the idea that Celestial blood is golden in color. Going with a Greek concept I read about. Apparently the Greek gods were said to have a golden blood which was toxic to humans.

She looks like someone just ****** her off and she is ready to tear that person a new one.

It's probably Sickle. XD

In this case, she's just battle-ready.

In any case, here's Macabre.

Finally got around to a weapon set for Sickle.
wrist blades.png
wrist blades.png (61.29 KiB) Viewed 160 times
Natural Claw – Self-explanatory. Despite the fact that only the point appears sharp, this claw is capable of slicing through stone with ease.
Nature’s Reclamation – A mortal-made wrist attachment. Apparently belonged to some nature cult. Nothing truly came of the group.
First Draft – A sharp blade attached to a metal wristband of Sickle’s own design. Used this during a time when his claw was broken and needed time to heal.
Biting Wind – A jawbone with it’s outer edges sharpened. Initially used as a kama, since dismantled and repurposed by Nikolai.
Faux Streetie – Made from a switchblade that belonged to a mugger when Sickle visited a mortal realm.
Waning Moon – Created by a moon cult, and imbued with a great deal of power. Sickle was tasked with retrieving this.
Weasel Fang – Created by Sickle in an attempt to be able to level the field in fights against stronger opponents. Sees exceedingly little use, as bringing it out of his wrist is legitimately painful.

The "Biting Wind" was actually based on a weapon I made for Sickle when he was initially going to appear in the now cancelled "Adventures of Babylon" in the concept stage. I then made him have what is now "First Draft" when I decided to make him more akin to the creature that he's based off of, the kamaitachi. I would eventually reach the point of making the claw erupt from his wrist.

Yeah I can see how that "Weasel Fang" would really do a number on him.

I know have an urge to see Sickle do battle.

Should she ever show her face to their family again, they'll be ready.

Macabre did not take too kindly to being attacked by her when she initially came saying that she wanted to meet her big brother, and the bridge was completely burned when she attacked Mirage and attempted to kidnap Oliver. As far as Macabre is concerned, he doesn't have a sibling.
