So I've got this class called Environments & Characters, and our first actual assignment was to make two characters based on the Chinese zodiac, one good, one evil. Which animals we got were a random selection, and I got tiger and horse.
With some research I learned that the white tiger is one of the Four Symbols, and would present itself to an emperor that was purely virtuous. I decided my story would be that there was this douchey emperor that wanted to prove himself better than every one before him, so had his horsemen hunt down the Four Symbols to present themselves to him against their will.
So here's 西方白虎, the Western White Tiger. Or Bai for short as I'm calling her.
