Not to nitpick, but why does she have sparkles coming out of her cleavage?
I do love selkies, BTW, and this is certainly not your garden-variety rendition of one.

I think the tomb-guardians, according to Google, are called Fenmu Shou.

Or, when in doubt, I make up a name from Chinese characters. In this case there's Ling ("tomb") and Shou ("beast, wild animal").

Hope that helps and I can't wait to see what you cook up!

No problem. When in doubt and I don't know official Chinese names of creatures, I string one together (ie the jade rabbit on the moon in Chinese myth I named Yutuzu or "jade rabbit").

Love this, I played and beat Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles with a friend of mine and we tore it up as badass Selkies. This brought me back, thanks :D
